Our winery is a family business for many generations and it is now known for three generations under the name “Schabl”. The winery is located in the center of the village, in a beautiful, idyllic pedestrian area that begins at the town hall and extends to St. Michael’s Church next to the Deutsch Ordens Castle.
The house is one of the oldest buildings in the village, previously a small monastery. Very impressive is the age of the house visible at the old walls in the wine cellar, that can be visited every year during the open cellar door. Also, there are many architectural gems that point to its long history: a projection on the wall in the entryway served as a base for a small drawbridge that goes back to the time when it was a so-called “Festes Haus”. Even a small ceramic fire alarm is still visible on the facade!
We are cultivating a vineyard area of 45000 squaremeters. The vineyards are planted exclusively with white grape varieties like Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Neuburger, Rotgipfler, Zierfandler and more recently Pinot Blanc and Roter Muskateller. The red grapes of the Pinot Noir and Zweigelt are purchased from different producers in the region and processed at the winery.
The wine is mostly sold at the winery. Another smaller part will be shipped nationally and internationally.
