World’s Best Vineyards: third best worldwide and number 1 in Europe

The World’s Best Vineyards has crowned us the Best Vineyard in Europe and ranked us third best worldwide! 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 the Best Vineyard in Europe and ranked us third worldwide. Listed farther down are well-known names such as Châteaus Margaux and Mouton-Rothschild from Bordeaux, Ridge from the USA, as well as Henschke, Gaja, Antinori and numerous others from the rest of the world.

In addition to wine quality, the overall performance of each winery is assessed. This includes the range of tourist offerings, staff competence and friendliness, and the winery’s image and accessibility. With the attractiveness of the particular region crucial for this award, we in the Wachau are simply top worldwide. In short: we offer 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 by these accolades: “With our wines, we communicate all aspects of the Wachau – its unique landscape and the steep terraces, but also our vintner families, with their craftsmanship and their work to ensure sustainable vineyards, and not least our common efforts at the wine estate. We are very pleased with these awards!
