The winery is located in the municipality of Badersdorf in the Eisenberg wine-growing region of Burgenland (Austria). An inn and a guesthouse Am Kamm des Eisenbergs are attached. The family business has been run by Mathias Jalits, the fifth generation, since 2001 after graduating from the hotel management school in Oberwart and working for one and a half years in the catering industry. The vineyards cover 16 hectares in the Bründlgfangen, Csaterberg, Fasching, Hummergraben, Paigl, Reihburg, Saybritz and Szápary vineyards.
They are planted with the white wine varieties Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner,Pinot Blanc and Riesling, as well as the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Blauburger and Blauer Portugieser. The aim of the house is to press wines that are typical of the region and to refrain from daring experiments. Depending on the type of wine, they are matured in stainless steel tanks, in large wooden bar rels or in barriques. The premium wines are three Eisenberg DAC (Blaufränkisch) from different vineyards as well as the red wine cuvée Kontur (formerly Steinberg) made from 40 hl/ha yield-reduced Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a predicted shelf life of 25 years. An Uhudler Frizzante is also produced.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
