HISTORY History of Viticulture in Burgenland dates back to Romans times. Since generations Schneider family runs a wine farm in Halbturn close to lake Neusiedl.
Currently the family estate is headed by Franz Schneider and Ulrike Schmied.
Both passed a study in viticulture, enology and wine economics at University of Applied Life Sciences in Vienna. Additionally Franz Schneider did several national and international internships at renowned estates like in Barolo/Italien at Azienda Agricola Luciano Sandrone (www.sandroneluciano.com), in Germany at research center Geisenheim (www.campus-geisenheim.de) and in South Africa at Klein Constantia Estate (www.kleinconstantia.com).
An „artisanal“ production is our traditional craftmanship in the vineyards and the art to transfer grapes into wine - with huge respect to nature. Due to this approach terroir driven wines are created.
Our vineyards are planted nearly evenly to white and red varieties and are located closely around the small village of Halbturn. Main climate factor is nearby lake Neusiedl. The big water surface levels out heat and cold spikes during winter and summer.
The soils are a mix of light gravelly soils and heavy loam with huge differences in lime content. Each site is carefully chosen to fit to the different varieties to be able to show its full potential.
Sustainable viticulture is our strategic approach to produce high quality grapes. Center piece is vineyard monitoring regarding pests and sufficient presence of beneficial organisms as well as a permanent evaluation on maturation of our wines in the the barrel cellar.
Currently we are working with indigenous varieties like Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Blauer Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and Sankt Laurent, complemented by internationally known stars like Sauvignon Blanc, Grauburgunder, Chardonnay and Merlot.
WINES Our wines are produced in 2 different ranges. PURE range wines are unoaked varietal wines for everyday enjoyment.
