Domäne Wilfersdorf in the Weinviertel

EstateThe historic Estate Wilfersdorf is located in the northern Weinviertel (“Wine Province”), whose loess soils and pronounced Pannonian climate have influenced viticulture in the region from time immemorial. Very hot and dry summers, along with cold winters, impart vigor and expression to the wines and predestine for the production of classic Austrian cool-climate wines with plenty of elegance and marked acidity. Grape varieties like Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Muskat Ottonel, Zweigelt and Merlot thrive in such ideal conditions. The most important sites of viticulture “Karlsberg” and “Johannesberg”, of the princely domain comprise a total of 35 hectares and belong to the wine-growing community of Herrnbaumgarten.

Princely Wine Tradition Since 1436

The manors of Wilfersdorf have been in the possession of the Prince of Liechtenstein since 1436, when Otto von Meyssau bequeathed the property to his nephew, Christoph von Liechtenstein. The princely Austrian Winefamily has cultivated the manors of Wilfersdorf for almost 600 years and passed them on from one generation to the next. Continuity and innovative spirit have been the crucial factors determining wine growing and wine making in Wilfersdorf. The spirit of the family enterprise, which is characterized by sustainability, and the great princely tradition have led to the production of timeless and classic quality wines whose proven value goes beyond short term market trends.
