Our still young story

It all started with a hobby. But out of this grew a small wine cellar, where we pressed grapes from winegrowers in our local vicinity. The wines were marketed and sold under the label “Özelt-Hof”.

As the hobby turned into passion, our first vineyard was planted back in 2000, which was the time when not only the wedding to Burgi took place and our lovely daughter Sophia was born, but also when the very first grapes ripened.

All in all one amazing year. But to top it all off, the vintage was stunning too!
In the years that followed the main feature consisted of change: clearing, restructuring, modern vines and concentration on three wine types.

Today we are where we have always wanted to be. The Fuchsenrand reed beds with their high percentage of Grüner Veltliner, but not forgetting Sauvignon Blanc and some Riesling, are at the heart of this. The new acquisition is characterised by vines which are more than 50 years old and by unique traits relating to the health of the vines and fragrances.
Indeed, it is ultimately a vocation that has developed from the original hobby. A journey that makes me quite proud.
