Flavour without frontiers in Burgenland

Burgenland is different to the rest of Austria: instead of mountains, you will find the Hungarian Puszta plain, Pannonian cuisine, quaint villages, and vineyards, where some of the best grapes grow.

A perfect destination for a stimulating tour of flavoursome indulgence to winemakers, top restaurants and “heurigen” taverns. And should you find yourself in south Burgenland, we would be pleased to welcome you to our vineyard.

The world of wine and Blaufränkisch

Wine writers and sommeliers from all over Europe and the US discussed together with some Austrian winemakers in Lech am Arlberg, Blaufränkisch’s place in the world.

Read Jancis Robinson’s interesting post and her tasting notes.


4 Stars for Blaufränkisch Ried Weinberg 2017 and for Blaufränkisch Perwolff 2020

From the tasting notes:

Perwolff Blaufränkisch 2020:

Full velvety fruit, blackberries and sloes, develops beautifully, a little sandalwood, cake, wild cherry; medium-opulant body, purist transparent berries, quite lively, very strong structure, longer finish.



…Quote: Winemakers that are given the highest rating by Falstaff are among the best in the world and enjoy the corresponding international recognition and demand. This is represented in particular by the obligatory five-star rating, a distinctive honour for originality and unique taste, as well as continued top performance. A total of 31 vineyards have been awarded this coveted honour in the current guide.

We are very proud of this distinction. It shows us we are on the right path.

Perwolff 2019:
Intensive, deep red colour, complex bouquet, blackberry, juniper, cornelian cherry, dark chocolate in the background, full bodied, dense, and tight structure, hint of tannins and a fruity finish, with blood orange and cranberry in the finish, very, very long finish, wow … almost perfect … a must. Blaufränkisch!

Top-Rating on James
Perwolff 2018: 97 Points
Alter Weingarten 2018: 94 Points

Excerpt from the rating:

Perwolff 2018:
This has an entire fjord of elderberry aroma on the nose, but also notes of rose hips, wet earth and just a whiff of smoke from oak. Very concentrated, but also super straight and pure, the tannins building steadily as it flows over the palate, the subliminal acidity accelerating the mineral finish to warp speed. Must be the best vintage so far of this wine, which made its debut with the 1992 vintage. Drink or hold.

Alter Weingarten 2018:
Stunning intensity of ripe elderberry with gingerbread-spice notes and touches of wet earth and raw meat. Very good concentration and fine tannins that are already beautifully married to the acidity through the long, intensely mineral finish. Drink or hold.
