Three communities - Winden, Breitenbrunn and, for the majority, Purbach - provide the plots for our vineyards; on premium sites, yet so widespread as to allow each variety to reach its full potential.

Sound grapes and healthy vines are the quintessence of high-quality wines, careful and diligent protection against diseases and pests included
