Moritz Alfred

The winery "Rotweinbau Moritz" is located in the municipality of Horitschon in the Austrian DAC area of Central Burgenland. It was founded in the early 1960s. Since 2004 Alfred T. Moritz has been managing the winery. In his capacity as an artist (painter), he also organizes "kunst&keller events" in the winery, which aim to combine modern, contemporary art with the art of winemaking. The vineyards comprise 2.5 hectares of vineyards in the Gfanger and Hochäcker areas, which are exclusively planted with the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch and Blauer Zweigelt. Since 2006, the vineyards have been cultivated entirely according to the rules of organic viticulture. This includes the renunciation of fungicides, herbicides and insecticides, a well aerated foliage wall, greening for the promotion of beneficial organisms, as well as humus build-up. The small size of the farm allows us to work all the more intensively with each individual vine and with each individual bottle of wine. The aim is to produce fruity, terroir-influenced and independent red wines. Premium wines are the "Big Bang" and "Perpedes" (Blaufränkisch) produced as Mittelburgenland DAC, as well as the cuvée "barba.rossa" (Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt). Around 15,000 bottles of wine are produced annually, with felt labels designed and handmade by Alfred T. Moritz.
