The family estate in the Southern Weinviertel region belongs to one of the most well recognized names in the Austrian wine business. Siblings Roman Josef Pfaffl and Heidemarie Fischer and their parents Adelheid and Roman Pfaffl are still deeply rooted in their homeland. Together they carry the best of the Weinviertel?s grounds out into the world. Roman Pfaffl concentrates intensively on the vines? requirements and their terroir. Today, the family cultivates nearly 170 acres of vineyards, which are embedded like islands in the landscape and spread over 11 municipalities in the Weinviertel region and also around the capital Vienna. Nationally as well as internationally (they are exported in more than 20 countries) the wines behind the Pfaffl label gain more and more recognitions. Step by step the young generation is taking over the reins, but always keeping the family-philosophy in mind: „The quality grows in the vineyard?. Grüner Veltliner is the most beloved grape variety of the Pfaffl family; it is vinificated from fresh and fruity to opulent and complex, but always keeping one typical element in common: the peppery spice usually associated to Gruner Veltliner. The deep loess over rocky subsoil in the Haidviertel vineyard yields a highly fruity Grüner Veltliner. Bright yellow, a full pinch of black pepper guarded by some mandarine, a crisp and juicy body with enough spice makes you fancy more, animating finish. A wonderful companion to food, perfect to roast pork, but also to fine fish and salads!
