Weinviertel has such great soil and attractive climatic conditions to make wine - but the region was "sleeping" for the longest time - but we have been working hard and all this is changing fast now!  People who used say initially "Oh, Weinviertel - not that interesting!" - now 10 years later, when they tasted our wines they are awestruck!

So I would like to continue my journey and hopefully in 10 years, I would be here to witness the fruits of our labour!"
