Weingut Setzer

Falstaff Wine Guide Austria 2023/24

The winery has been family-owned since 1705 and has been passed down from generation to generation with pride and a great sense of responsibility. Until recently, Hans and Ulrike Setzer were in charge of the winery, but today they are supported by their children Marie-Theres and Eugen. Both are already trained in viticulture and are just as passionate about it. Hohenwarth on the Manhartsberg, on the edge of the western Weinviertel, is particularly predestined for Grüner and Roter Veltliner due to its location. These two grape varieties form the heart of the winery and are produced both as a light wine and as full-bodied single-vineyard wines. The flagships of the estate are Weinviertel DAC Reserve "8000" and Roter Veltliner Ried Kreimelberg. Due to the altitude of the Hohenwarth site at almost 400 metres, the temperature differences between day and night give the grapes a pronounced fruity aroma. The old vines in turn provide the grapes with minerality from the depths of the brown earth soils (with gravel in the subsoil) and ensure a perfect water supply even during dry periods. Vines more than 60 years old are not uncommon in the Setzer vineyards. The Setzer in Pink is a fruity, light rosé that exudes the flair of Nice, inspired by the rosé wines of Provence, only slightly lighter in alcohol - ideal with seafood or pasta dishes. Setzer wines have been successful worldwide for many years. They can be found in top restaurants from San Francisco in the west to Shanghai in the east. Setzer wines are also appreciated in Australia and on holiday islands such as the Maldives. Maturing fine wines is what the Setzer winery, an "island of the blessed" in the middle of Austria's most important winegrowing region, loves to do. Here, the Lower Austrian zest for life is combined with a passion for enjoyment and the pursuit of perfection - a mixture that obviously only produces the finest.
