    Scheiblhofer is well-known for its full-bodied fine wines with lots of personality.

    The winery is located in the beautiful region of Burgenland and Lake Neusiedl, which was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 2001. Burgenland is a famous wine-growing region in the eastern Austria with good conditions for wine cultivation. This lowland has a relatively dry climate with hot summers and not too cold winters. Also, the soil is rather mineral and gravelly. In addition, the immediate proximity to Lake Neusiedl has a positive effect on the growth of the Zweigelt, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and other grape varieties.

    Andreasberg is not only an exhibition vineyard with over 60 different grape varieties, but also OFFICIALLY CLASSIFIED AS A MOUNTAIN VINEYARD.

    Created by Scheiblhofer, Andreasberg is the highest point of Andau. It provides an amazing vineyard experience. During my visit there, I absolutely loved it, as I could enjoy a charming picnic among the vines and a splendid view from the looking tower.

    Good to know:

    • Scheiblhofer is one of the largest wineries in Burgenland because the winery owns over 75 hectares of vineyards.
    • The company was found by Johann Scheiblhofer, and currently leaded by his son, Erich Scheiblhofer. The young winemaker Erich Scheiblhofer collected his wine-knowledge in California and Australia. As a result, he became a winemaker and international oenologist. He, without doubt, managed harmoniously incorporate family traditions and new technologies. Consequently, creating sensational full-bodied, strong wines.
    • Scheiblhofer is always at the front row of winemaking, integrating up-to-date technologies. For example, they use a new generation of Diam corks. Through an exclusive patented process, cork “de-aromatization”, these cork-closures ensure incomparable sensorial neutrality. Hence, securing the perfectly controlled ageing of wines.
    • In 2011, Markus del Monego (Best Sommelier of the World 1998) and Adreas Larsson (Best Sommelier of the World 2007) gave 94,5 points to Scheiblhofer Cuvée Rot – Big John. That was the highest number of points out of all 300 tasted wines.
    • Within number of years, the winery has been receiving the title “Winery of the year” as well as many other awards.
    • Being winemakers, the team cares a big deal about nature. From energy self-sufficient and environmental responsible wine production to e-bikes and e-cars, they surely show a strong statement for sustainability. The winery has been awarded with the sustainability certificate by the Austrian Winegrowing Association since 2017.
    • In Switzerland, you may find this exquisite wine at all Mövenpick wine cellars and/or online store.
