Vereinte Winzer Blaufränkischland

The winegrowers' cooperative is located in the municipality of Horitschon in the Austrian DAC area of Mittelburgenland. It was founded in 1962 under the former name "Winzergenossenschaft Horitschon". Sales manager Hans Dowitsch is responsible for sales, export and marketing. The cellar master Ing. Gregor Wolf is responsible for all matters concerning vinification. About 500 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the 450 members. Mainly 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 optimum harvest date is determined by the cellar master depending on weather, must weight and other criteria, and varies from vineyard to vineyard.
