Velich Heinz

The estate is located in the municipality of Apetlon in the middle of the Lange Lacke nature reserve in the Burgenland wine-growing region Lake Neusiedl (Austria). It is managed by Heinz Velich. The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards that are planted exclusively with white wines. These are Chardonnay, Welschriesling, Muskat-Ottonel, Neuburger, Pinot Gris and Bouvier. Great importance is attached to the high ripeness of the grapes and the regional character of the wines. Around a third of the production is sweet wines, which are mostly aged in barriques. The flagship of the house is the "Chardonnay Tiglat", vinified since 1990, which undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged in French oak barrels. The name is a dialect expression for fat, rock-containing rock. Other premium wines are "Chardonnay Darscho" and the cuvée "TO" (Hungarian for lake) from the Chardonnay, Welschriesling and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. Around 50,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the winegrowers' association Renowned wineries Burgenland,
