The wine-growing community of Illmitz lies on the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl in sunny Burgenland in Austria, characterized by countless lakes and endless plains. This area, which is called "Seewinkel", is very influenced by the Pannonian climate. It is characterised by very hot and dry summer days and cold winters.
The winery has been family-run since 1926 and is now in its 4th generation with Norbert Kroiss. His father Michael Kroiss is always at his side with words and deeds and is an indispensable force in the winery.
In 1926 the great-grandfather started with a small wine production and since then the company has grown steadily. Currently, about 35 hours of vineyards are cultivated. The vineyard areas are planted with approx. 40% white wine and approx. 60% red wine vines.
By careful processing and selection of the best grapes we try to produce fruity white wines and rich red wines at the highest level.
We pay great attention to typical Austrian grape varieties such as Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, Grüner Veltliner or Welschriesling. International varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir or Chardonnay are also ideal for this area.
