VINEYARD & HARVEST

For us, harvest actually begins in spring, when the vines start to shoot and painstaking care has to be taken to ensure sustainable vineyard management. While cautious thinning and precise operations are very important, the main work until ripeness is automatically done by South-Burgenland’s climate and
the beautifully minerally soils encountered in Deutsch-Schützen and on the Eisenberg. Usually, the
first grape to pick is Zweigelt, followed by the picks from the 3 to 15-year-old vines and, right at the end, from the 30 to 50-year-old vines. The harvest is exclusively done by hand, with the help of the whole family and experienced pickers. Yields are deliberately kept low, so that only really ripe and perfect fruit are processed.
