Schützenhof

The traditional winery is located in the Burgenland municipality German shooters in the Austrian DAC area Eisenberg, It has been in the sixth generation of families since 1816. Felix Körper was a pioneer for excellent red wine quality and already bottled in 1952. According to him, the best Blaufränkisch every year is called a “senoir” as a tribute. In 2005 the winery was awarded the architecture prize of the Burgenland. Today the company is run by Walter "Mike" Faulhammer and Karin Faulhammer-Körper, who are supported by son Markus. The vineyards cover 12 hectares of vineyards, 95% of which are planted with the red varieties Blaufränkisch , Zweigelt, Blauburger, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and 5% with the white varieties Welschriesling, Gelber Muskateller and Chardonnay. Some of the vines are over 60 years old.

In the vineyard, the highest attention is paid to extensive processing and maintenance of the vineyards with intensive foliage work and rigorous thin out laid for quality-reducing yield reduction. The aim is typical and unmistakably tasting wines with long storage potential. The principle here is that as little intervention as possible should be made in the natural ripening process. The red wines are aged at least 12 months to 33 months and longer in barriques. The premium wines are the red wine cuvées "3-Klang" (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir) and "Kastellan" ( Blaufränkisch , Merlot, Pinot Noir), as well as the Blaufränkisch Senior and Zweigelt ratchets mentioned. A white sparkling wine "Briszante" is also produced. Around 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the winegrower community Wine idyll in southern Burgenland,
