Tischelmayer Norbert

Tischelmayer Norbert Norbert Franz Josef Tischelmayer was born in April 1945 during the last weeks of the war in Mühlbach am Manhartsberg in the Weinviertel(Lower Austria), surrounded by vineyards, so to speak. His father was employed for decades by a large winery, August Sutter in Hohenwarth. In his childhood he regularly helped with the grape harvests. At that time there were still the "Hiata-Hütt'n", where the "Hiata"(vineyard keepers) stayed two to three weeks before the harvest time and kept a strict watch that nobody touched the delicious grapes. For the boys it was a test of courage and a prerequisite for acceptance into the "Club of the Greats" to steal grapes despite the danger of being "caught". These were the first impulses to get involved with wine.

The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!
