Proidl Franz

The traditional winery is located in the municipality Senftenberg Krems in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Kremstal, The name Proidl in Senftenberg was first mentioned in 1650 in a document. The company is now operated by Franz and Andrea Proidl in the ninth generation of families. With the children Patrick and Raphaela Proidl, the tenth generation is already working in the company. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Ehrenfels (the wholly owned, for decades broke lying vine has been recultivated over years of work and replanted), Hochäcker, Pellingen, Pfeningberg and Rameln with mostly steep terraced slopes. The white varieties Grüner Veltliner (with more than 50% the main variety), Riesling, Gelber Muskateller and Chardonnay, as well as 10% the red varieties Blauer Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are cultivated.

It is a stated goal to produce wines with storage potential, which begins with later selective hand picking. In the fermentation the use of pure culture yeast is avoided if possible. The spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts takes place during slow fermentation. This takes three to ten months for the layered wines. The premium wines include various Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner Kremstal DAC or Kremstal DAC Reserve and Blauer Zweigelt. The latest product is a Riesling called "Generation X". In weather-appropriate years are also Trockenbeerenauslese generated. It also distilled spirits. Every year around 50,000 bottles of wine are produced. The winery is a member of the vintners association Kremstaler Convent and since the year 2013 the Traditionsweingüter Austria,
