Things all began with Michael’s grandfather, who ran a mixed agricultural enterprise in Höflein, with three hectares of vineyards. Including a row of Syrah vines in the vineyard site Kirchtal, which is probably one of the oldest parcels of Syrah planted in Austrian soil. However, his grandfather still marketed the entire production exclusively as cask wine.
Today, Michael and his wife Carina cultivate more than twelve hectares of Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Zweigelt, Syrah, Pinot Noir and Blaufränkisch in and around the village of Höflein. With their new construction in 2017, the estate has at last definitely outgrown the label ‘garage winery’.
