World’s Best Vineyards: Top 3 of the World and Europe's Number 1

The World’s Best Vineyards has awarded us with the Best Vineyard in Europe title and listed us as third best in the world! We play in concert with the world’s most visited wine estates.

The World's Best Vineyards is not just any award list. The jury is exclusive, and so are the rated wine estates. Around 500 international sommeliers, wine critics and tourism experts have voted us as the Best Vineyard in Europe and ranked us third worldwide. Behind us are well-known names such as Châteaus Margaux and Mouton-Rothschild from Bordeaux and Ridge from the USA and Henschke, Gaja, Antinori and many more from the rest of the world.

In addition to wine quality, the overall performance of each winery was assessed. This included the range of tourist offerings, the competence and friendliness of the staff, and the image and accessibility. The attractiveness of the region itself is crucial for this award and we are all simply top in the Wachau all over the world. In short: everything that makes a visit to a winery and its region an exciting and rewarding experience for guests.

Roman Horvath, our winery director, is delighted about these accolades: "With our wines, we communicate all aspects of the Wachau - its unique landscape and the steep terraces, but also the craftsmanship and sustainable work in the vineyards by our vintner families, and the collective interaction at the wine estate. We are very happy with these awards!"
