NATURE

Soil and
determine
the rules.

The grapes that ripen in the vineyard must be harvested healthy and at the right point in time. It is first in the cellar that the multiple attributes are translated into wine.

CRAFT

In the cellar, I stand by my wine.

In the vineyard, grapes ripen and have to be harvested healthy and at the right time. But it is only in the cellar that you translate the many-voiced characteristics into wine.

SITES

Where my wine thrives.

My vineyards are located on plateaus, on the plain, and on slopes that descend in gentle waves.

The soils are usually rocky, but also sometimes deep. The sites are frequently sun-drenched and warm, but some are cool and shady.

Where are the sites?

FAMILY

Wine is
our living
Tradition.

Although my family is documented as early as 1347 in Schützen, it was my grandfather that first bottled wine. He also immediately won accolades for it.

My parents turned their full attention to wine. From that point onwards, the focus was quality before quantity.

    Blaufränkisch

    Blaufränkisch is in our genes. By “our”, I mean my family and the vintners of Leithaberg. We know this variety’s moods and demands. Blaufränkisch in not an easy variety – whether for us or for you. It is capricious, challenging and stubborn. Rooted in limestone, it wants the sun; growing on schist, it requires refreshing winds. It rests preferably in wood, yet the barrels shouldn’t be too small. Of you, it demands patience. Blaufränkisch needs time. If you yield yourself to Blaufränkisch, you will understand why we fulfil all of this variety’s desires. For me, it is one of the few varieties in the world that perfectly balances two elements: energy and clarity.

    Pinot Blanc

    Old vines are the fortune of every vintner. They root deeply and lend their intrinsic potential a persistent voice. Pinot Blanc, also locally called Weissburgunder, has a long tradition in our region. My grandfather planted most of our vines in the limestone of the Seeberg site 60 years ago. A few were even planted by my grandfather over 90 years ago. It is my duty today to continue to tell the story that the two of them began.

    stories.

    It was in the 12th century when Cistercian monks from Burgundy set up camp on Lake Neusiedl. They were not only Bible-tough, but also knowledgeable winegrowers. Consequently, it did not take long before they put out scions from their old homeland - Pinot Blanc anyway, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, whose enormous potential we are still exploring today. 800 years later, my father set off in the opposite direction. He had taken a fancy to Bordeaux. Planted with passion, a little Merlot has also taken root at Schützner Stein since then.

    stories.

    Cistercian monks from Burgundy settled on Lake Neusiedl in the 12th century. They were not only knowledgeable of the bible, but were also experienced vintners. It did not take long for them to plant vine cuttings from their original home. They planted not only Pinot Blanc, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – varieties with enormous potential that we continue to appreciate today. 800 years later, my father set course in an opposite direction. Bordeaux had captivated him. Planted with great passion, a little Merlot continues to grow on Schützner Stein.
