The wine cooperative
lies in the municipality Horitschon in the Austrian DAC area Mittelburgenland
, It was founded in 1962 under the then name "Winzergenossenschaft Horitschon". Responsible for sales, export and marketing is sales manager Hans Dowitsch. Cellar master Ing. Gregor Wolf is responsible for all matters relating to the vinification. Of the 450 members, about 500 hectares of vineyards are farmed. In particular, the Austrian traditional red varieties Blaufränkisch
(70%) and Zweigelt (24%), as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are processed. The delivery of the grapes is done computer-controlled separately by variety, whereby the optimal read appointment is determined depending on weather, must weight and other criteria differently depending on the wine cellar.
The maturing cellar, which went into operation in August 2004, was designed and built by the Austrian star architect Wilhelm Holzbauer. It enables optimal maturing conditions around the barrique and wooden barrel removal as well as a perfect organization of the bottling
