more than just a market-village

Horitschon lies, in a region called "Blaufränkischland". Only on this piece of soil the wine shows its deep cherry aroma that reflects this region.


In their cellars the vintners of the „Blaufränkisch-Land“ vinify three types of wine: the classic, stored in big barrels , the barrique, stored in small oak barrels, and the cuvée.


All of these grapes are certainly important but there is one sort of red wine grape that plays the central role on approximately 2.117 hectare vineyard in Burgenland. This grape is called Blaufränkisch and represents its roots ideally and typically in the form of DAC-wine. about the site

about the "Blaufränkischland"

why is it called blaufränkisch-land?

Blaufränkisch is a term describing the wine-growing-area of the middle-Burgenland. It came to its name since the grape Blaufränkisch is primarily cultivated there.


The vineyards of this region extend over an area of 2.000 hectare: from the south spur of the Ödenburger-mountain up to the Günser-mountain; in the east it borders on the hungarian lowlands.


The wine can unfold its full potential because of the pannonian influence, which is responsible for its superb grape quality. The clayey soil is ideal for this sort of grape.

In the austrian wine law the "Blaufränkischland" of middle-Burgenland is defined as an independent wine-growing-area, because their vintners concerned themselves more with the grape Blaufränkisch than any other region of Austria. about our vineyards
