Castle winery Bockfliess

The castle is located in the municipality of Stetten in the Lower Austrian wine region Weinviertel, The location was already mentioned in 1168. The vaulted cellar with a spacious press house dates back to 1670. Here are the only two mirror-image Baroque tree presses in Austria. They were built in 1698 by the family Abensperg - Traun in gratitude for the fact that in 1683 the castle could not be occupied by the attacking Turkish troops during the second Turkish siege of Vienna. Each of the mighty press trees is about 10 meters long and an estimated 2,800 kg. The presses were in use until 1910. After the severe damage after the end of World War II, the castle was completely restored by the Abensperg-Traun family and is now the residence of the Goess family.

In the year 2000 the Stetten winegrower family took over Pfaffl Roman the management of the vineyards. These cover about nine hectares of vineyards in the near the castle Riede Hochfeld on deep loess soil. They are planted with the varieties Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and St. Laurent. The vineyards are permanently greened. It is entirely a manual reading. The processing of the grapes is done according to the highest quality standards in the in-house cellar of the winery Pfaffl. There, the wines are pressed carefully, fermented temperature-controlled and classically expanded in large wooden barrels. Among the premium wines count Weinviertel DAC (Grüner Veltliner), St. Laurent and Pinot Blanc.
