The "Rotweingut Prickler" is located in the municipality of Lutzmannsburg in the Austrian wine-growing region of Mittelburgenland. It is managed by Herbert Prickler, his son Christian (cellarmaster) is responsible for the cellar. Elfi Prickler is responsible for the vineyards "from pruning to harvest", Christina Prickler is responsible for event management, tastings, marketing and customer service. The company motto is: "Wine is our great passion".
The vineyards comprise 22 hectares of vines on the Lutzmannsburg plateau, including the Alt Satz, Kirchner and Sonnberg vineyards. They are mainly planted with the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch (60%), Zweigelt (20%), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, as well as some Welschriesling. Grapes are also bought in. Through appropriate measures, quality-enhancing low yields are achieved. Through selective manual harvesting only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are processed.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
