The winegrowers' cooperative is located in the municipality of Horitschon in the Austrian winegrowing region of Mittelburgenland. It was founded in 1962 under the then name "Winzergenossenschaft Horitschon" (Horitschon Winegrowers' Cooperative), then operated under the name "Vereinte Winzer Blaufränkischland" (United Winegrowers of Blaufränkischland) and was finally renamed "Eichenwald Weine". Sales manager Hans Dowitsch is responsible for sales, export and marketing. Cellar master Martin Prinz is responsible for all matters concerning vinification. Around 500 hectares are cultivated by the 450 members. The traditional Austrian red wine varieties Blaufränkisch (70%) and Zweigelt (24%), as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are processed. The delivery of the grapes is computer-controlled and separated according to variety. The optimal harvest date is determined by the cellar master, depending on the weather and must weight of each vineyard.
