Wegleitner Johann

The estate is located in the municipality of Apetlon in the Burgenland wine-growing region Lake Neusiedl (Austria) It is managed by Johann Wegleitner (vineyards) and his son Johannes (marketing, sales, cellar). The vineyards cover 3.5 hectares of vineyards, 55% of which are planted with the red varieties Blauer Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, and 45% with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner, Bouvier and Chardonnay. Great value is placed on conscious thin out, as well as careful processing of fully ripe, healthy grapes. The white wines are fermented and expanded in stainless steel. Depending on the type of wine, the red wines mature in stainless steel or in used or new barriques. The main focus is also on the varieties Grüner Veltliner, Blauer Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch . The majority of the white wine grapes are used for the production of fine sweet wines and only a few are made dry. Premium wines are the red wine "Joweel" (Zweigelt), the cuvée "Fabio" (Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch , St. Laurent), as well as several dried berries. If the weather is suitable, ice wines are also pressed.
