Haider Gerhard

The winery is located in the municipality of Illmitz in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The traditional family business has been in existence since 1870 and is now managed in the fourth generation by Gerhard and Silvia Haider, while father Martin Haider is responsible for the vineyards. These comprise 13 hectares of vineyards, for example in the Kaiserwinkel, Römerstein and Sandriegel vineyards. They are planted to 70% with the white wine varieties Welschriesling, Riesling, Sämling 88, Grüner Veltliner, Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Bouvier and Muskat Ottonel, and 30% with the red wine varieties Blauer Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and St. Laurent. Fermentation is temperature-controlled with pure yeasts and the fermentation time is kept as short as possible. Martin Haider is regarded as an absolute specialist of sweet wines in all Prädikat levels from Beerenauslese to Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein, which in good years account for up to 70% of production. These are exported up to 85%. Among the premium wines are Trockenbeerenauslese, nectar essence Trockenbeerenauslese (very high grade Trockenbeerenauslese, which can only be produced in very good vintages) and the red wines aged in barriques. Also worth mentioning is the white wine cuvée "Federwolke" (Riesling, Grüner Veltliner) with only 9.5% vol. alcohol content.
