Blackbuck

The winery is located in the municipality of Hagenbrunn on the city limits of Vienna in the south-east of the Lower Austrian wine growing region Weinviertel. It is already in the fifth family generation of winegrowing. After years of practical experience in the vineyards Knoll Emmerich (Wachau) and Wirsching Hans (Iphofen in Franconia) it has been managed by Rudolf Schwarzböck jun. since 2003. His wife Anita was Lower Austrian and Austrian Wine Queen from 1999 to 2001 before their marriage. With structural extensions, the new location in the Hauptstraße was taken into operation.

The winery is located at the interface of the two wine growing regions Lower Austria and Vienna. The vineyards comprise 23 hectares of vines in the Vienna wine region in the Kirchberg and Falkenberg vineyards (Stammersdorf), as well as in the Weinviertel wine region in the Aichleiten (the heart of the vineyard), Sätzen, Tagner and Pöcken (Hagenbrunn) and Bisamberg vineyards. They are 75% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Gelber Muskateller(Muscat Blanc), Chardonnay, Welschriesling and Pinot Blanc, and 25% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Blauburger and Blauer Portugieser. A sustainable, nature-orientated cultivation is practised, without the use of chemical fertilisers.

The quality concept includes a low form of upbringing and yield-reducing measures. The grapes are selectively harvested by hand before being processed. The wines are produced in the lines "light & lively", "Bisamberg", "Classic" and "Premium". The premium white wines are bottled after one year, the premium red wines after one and a half years of maturation in barriques and subsequent bottle maturation. These include Weinviertel DAC and Weinviertel DAC Reserve from various vineyards, Riesling Aichleiten and the red wine cuvée Grande Reserve (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot). Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, Frizzante, fine brandies(marc), grape juice, wine jelly and chocolate are also marketed in cooperation with the first Austrian chocolate manufacturer. The winery is a member of the premium wine estates Weinviertel.
