Haindl-Erlacher

The winery is located in the community of Wolkersdorf about 15 kilometres north of the Austrian capital Vienna in the Weinviertel wine growing region of Lower Austria. The traditional company has been in family ownership since 1690. Since 2004 it has been managed by Romana and Walter Erlacher. Romana, a graduate of the Klosterneuburg School of Viticulture and Austrian Wine Queen in 1996/1997, started working in the winery after her studies at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences and apprenticeships abroad (including Nelsons Creek in South Africa). Walter Erlacher is a trained food biotechnologist and ambitious career changer. The vineyards comprise 16 hectares of vineyards in the Wolkersdorf vineyards Kühbühel, Ochsleiten, Stixenkreuter and Roseneck. They are 75% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (with about 50% of the vineyard area), Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Welschriesling, Riesling, Neuburger and Pinot Gris, and 25% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blauburger and Merlot. Quality criteria are natural cultivation in the vineyard, strict yield limitation and careful manual harvesting. The main focus is on the Weinviertler Leitsorte Grüner Veltliner with for example Weinviertel DAC. The Burgundy wines mature at least half a year in large wooden barrels and are marketed under "Premium". About 45% of the wines are sold from the farm, 15% are exported.
