In 1919, Katharina and Josef Zöchling founded the family business on 1.3 hectares of land. In the years 1946 to 1958, the wine-growing area was extended to 3.5 hectares. The wine produced was sold directly from the barrel at the ‘Buschenschank’, the wine-tavern.

During the early 60s the wine-growing area was extended to 9 hectares. This was made possible by the development of the vine cultivation by means of the high-trellis system. Currently we produce 11 varieties of wine on an area of 9 hectares.

We achieve only low yields on our sand and gravel soil, but the favourable Pannonian climate assures the high quality of our wines. Short pruning, selective cultivation of soil and terrain, as well as artificial irrigation during dry periods, are the measures we take to guarantee the consistently high quality of our wines. During pressing, and in the wine cellar, we pay careful attention to the gentle handling of the grapes and the young wine. Then, finally the wine matures slowly in barrels or in tanks, waiting to be enjoyed glass by glass.
