Our family winery has history

The origin of our farm dates back to 1602. Monks of the Erlahof used a cellar and a small house here as storage for fishing. There were over 15 fish ponds on the property.
From 1950, Grandpa Gerhard helped at the farm of his childless uncle and took it over in 1966. Step by step, he and his wife Elfriede slowly expanded the winery.
In 1996, after graduating from the Krems School of Viticulture, Martin and his wife Alexandra took over their parents’ winery.
Since then, every year until today has been modernized and also purchased and leased vineyards.
In 2016 our dream of our own hotel was realized: The WEINSPITZ


After the viticulture school in Krems and various internships at wineries, Martin took over the winery with Alexandra in 1996 with six private rooms.
Anyone looking for Martin is most likely to find him in the vineyard, in the cellar and on the terrace hosting.

Martin loves: cozy get-together with satisfied guests with strong white wines


The skilled gastronome is “the real chef” of the hotel. As the good soul of the house, she is responsible for the rooms, the hotel, the wine tavern kitchen, office and reception.

Alexandra loves: Satisfied guests, nice conversations, flowers

daughter Julia

The tourism businesswoman switched to viticulture and is currently busy with the master course for wine & cellar management.
She can be found everywhere: In the vineyard, in the cellar, at the breakfast buffet, at the guest reception, in the office, at wine tastings … She is also our IT representative.

Julia loves: good wine & food, nature in the vineyard, music & sports

son Michael

Michael already has his own winery with his partner – but he still occasionally helps out at the wine tavern or in the hotel bar.

Son-in-law Michi

Michael is involved in the winery and is everywhere when there is a need.
