Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The history of the winery begins more than 300 years ago, when the construction of a castle cellar in Eisenstadt's Esterházy Castle heralded a new beginning in wine production throughout what is now northern Burgenland. Monsieur LeBon, a cellar master from Burgundy, planted Pinot Noir in Burgenland for the first time in 1758 and for the first time made wines from single grape varieties.

The completion of the new cellar building in Trausdorf in 2006 represents the second milestone in the history of the winery. More than 50 hectares were planted with the best grape clones and rootstocks after countless soil and site analyses. The best vines were selected from the oldest vineyards.

In the cellar, new approaches are taken with an open mind, experimenting with wine containers such as eggs, amphorae, barrels and wooden barrels made of local Leithaberg oak. In addition to wood and stainless steel, materials such as granite, concrete, ceramics and clay are used for the vinification of the wines, which are typical for the region and the variety and show a clear Esterházy signature.

The wine lines at the absolute top level include fresh and fruity classics as well as wines with a strong character from the vineyards. The flagship is the "Tesoro", a cuvée of Blaufränkisch and Merlot, which incomparably expresses the unique interplay of climate, soil, site and grape varieties. The wines of the Esterházy winery have become outstanding ambassadors of Austrian wine culture. In addition to the domestic market, sustainable success has been achieved in Europe, Asia and North America.

Esterházy is one of the largest organic wineries in Austria, so that fine brandies, liqueurs and delicatessen products from the estate's own gardens, as well as display specialities from the estate's own hunting grounds, perfectly complement the product range in the winery's modern gourmet wine shop. Guests are offered a varied wine experience programme and excellent tasting opportunities all year round.
