Amazing Austrian Wine! Is Austria Europe's best kept wine secrets?

Aug 26, 2020Dafydd Morris

This weeks winery Wednesday focuses on the makers of "the dot" wine -  Weingut R&A Pfaffl.

One of the best kept secrets when it comes to European wines; Austria is recognised more for its ski-ing than wine-making, but the conditions are perfect for wine production.

About the winery:
At the Weingut R&A Pfaffl winery, they cultivate around 110 hectares, distributed around the village of Stetten in the Weinviertel and in neighbouring Vienna.

Due to the numerous vineyards and their diversity, they are able to produce a broad spectrum of wine styles and offer a number of different grape varieties and wine types.


Respectful management of the natural resources and environment is very important to the vineyard. Meticulous canopy management, manual selection of grapes, and sensitivity for the vines’ needs make it possible for them to cope with the vagaries of the weather and produce top quality wines year on year.


To create perfect conditions for the wines in our cellar, we shy from no cost or effort. Perfect hygiene, meticulous temperature control in all areas, optimal humidity, minimal pumping, and protective handling are provided. All of these efforts aid us in transporting the superb quality from our vineyards directly to the bottle.

This award-Winning Austrian winery has picked up a clutch of awards over the last 6 years, the most recent being Best Producer | Austria at the Mundis Vini Spring Tasting 2020.
