Wurzinger Josef

The estate is located in the municipality of Tadten, near the Hungarian border in the Burgenland wine-growing region Lake Neusiedl (Austria). It has been managed by Josef Wurzinger since 1991, who converted the previously mixed business to viticulture and fruit growing. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards in the Kreuzjoch, Oberzick and Unterjoch vineyards. 60% of them are planted with the red varieties Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch , Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and 40% with the white varieties Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Viticulture close to nature is practiced. Exclusively healthy and physiologically mature Grapes are picked by hand and checked again afterwards.

The white wines are always classically aged in steel tanks. The strong red wines (Kreuzjoch, St. Laurent) are fermented and fermented organically in predominantly new barriques, the traditional red wines from the Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch varieties in used barriques and large wooden barrels, depending on the type of wine and maturity, for at least 6 to 16 months. Sweet wines are only pressed in weather-appropriate years. The premium wines include, for example, the red wine cuvée Kreuzjoch (from all 5 red wine types), Blauer Zweigelt vom Heideboden and Blaufränkisch M. 55,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. An apple brandy is also produced.
