Awards: A Golden Fall 2009
We can't remember receiving so many awards at one time ever. Poet 2006 was among the jury's choice of the 20 best wines at the Burgenländische Weinprämierung 2009, the most important wine contest in Eastern Austria, and is being featured in the book publication on our province's top wines. Beside that, Priamos 2007, Poet 2007 and Zweigelt Edelgrund 2008 were awarded gold medals at the very contest.

Priamos 2006 has been accepted for the Salon 2009, Falstaff Guide 2009/2010 is featuring our wines with a top ranking, and food magazine essen trinken leben has labeled our Zweigelt rosé 2008 an "outstanding authentic" wine.

008 white acclaimed by Hamburger Abendblatt
"Get back a breeze of summer by tasting the 008 white", Northern German daily Hamburger recommends. "This wine bristles with lively freshness" and is therefore awarded the title "Wine of the Week" in early November 2008.

16 "Weinwisser"-Points for the Poet
René Gabriel, editor of Swiss wine magazine "Weinwisser" hardly ever rates even absolute top wines with more than 18 of 20 points possible. So we are honoured by his 16-point rating for our Poet 2006 which confirms the Poet's position in the upperclass of Austrian reds.
