Shaft seat

The traditional "Wein.Gut Wellanschitz" is located in the municipality of Neckenmarkt in the Austrian DAC area of Central Burgenland. The basis for the quality standard was laid by Stefan and Theresia Wellanschitz. In 1996, the sixth generation of the family, the two sons Stefan and Georg, supported by Stefan's wife Christine, built on this foundation. The vineyards comprise almost 28 hectares of vineyards in the areas Altes Weingebirge, Bodigraben, Gfanger, Hochberg, Hussi, Spiegelberg, Raga, Rüsselsgrund and Sonnensteig on mostly heavy clay soils. They are planted exclusively with red wine varieties, namely Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Blauburgunder, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. We consistently practice environmentally friendly viticulture close to nature with, among other things, the exclusive use of organic fertilizers, greening, as well as pest control with predatory mites

With about 80% of the vineyard area, Blaufränkisch is the dominant leading variety and speciality of the company, which is developed in many varieties. Vinification is carried out according to the principle of intervening as little as possible in the cellar. The flagship of the house is "Well" (stands for "good" or "source"), an ambiguous play on words with the family name. The red wine is a selection from the best Blaufränkisch vines, which are extremely thinned out in late summer. It matures for 24 months in barriques. Other premium wines are the cuvées "Fraternitas - Bruderschaft" (Blaufränkisch, CS) and "SAM" (Syrah, Zweigelt, Merlot), Blaufränkisch Altes Weingebirge, as well as Mittelburgenland DAC Hochberg (Blaufränkisch). About 120,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Fine brandies are also produced.
