Iby teacher

The winery is located in the municipality of Horitschon in the DAC area of Mittelburgenland (Austria). It was founded by Paul Iby and is today managed by his son-in-law, Ing. Paul Lehrner and his wife Eva. After graduating from the Klosterneuburg School of Viticulture and gaining practical experience in South Africa, son Ing. Michael Lehrner was responsible for vinification and development of the wines from 2000 onwards and finally took over the business in 2002. The vineyards comprise 15 hectares of vineyards in the Gfanger and Hochäcker areas. They are 90% planted with the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch (10 ha), Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Syrah, and 10% with Pinot Blanc

The grapes, which are harvested by hand in a strictly selective manner, are fermented in the classic way. This takes place temperature-controlled in modern fermentation tanks using the submerged method. Afterwards, the wines are aged either in large oak barrels or in barrique barrels, depending on the style. The premium wines include various Mittelburgenland DAC and Mittelburgenland DAC Reserve (Blaufränkisch), the red wine cuvées "Prelude" (from the four varieties of Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zweigelt) and "Mosso" (Blaufränkisch, St. Laurent, Syrah), as well as St. Laurent Gfanger, Blaufränkisch Rondo and Blaufränkisch Hochäcker. Around 50,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the Association Blaufränkischland Mittelburgenland.
