The Hochacker site belongs to the oldest vineyards of Horitschon. Its rock-free, hard, clay horizon is ferruginous and very close to the surface. It is an ideal soil for Blaufrankisch, which tends to extract the iron from the clay. Vines aged about 35 years bring grapes of highest quality for every harvest.
|Since 35 years we concentrate on Blaufrankisch, we work on six Blaufrankisch vineyards in three areas. From clay to slate, schist and lime. Very early we realized that the character of a vineyard can only be felt on a healthy living soil. Our oldest vines are 80 years old.
In the way we treat our vines with respect, we also treat our soils and people.
