    Despite its relative youth, Zweigelt is actually an Austrian classic. This variety was created in 1922, when Dr. Fritz Zweigelt crossed two grapes - St Laurent and Blaufrankisch. Originally, it was intended for the new variety to be called Rotburger, referring to the place where it was born, Klosterneuburg. But this name never took hold, and instead, Zweigelt was named after the man who was the key in its development.

    The Waldschutz family established their vineyards in Kamptal in 1849, initially as grape farmers then as winemakers since 1912.

    In 1992, Anton, the 5th generation, married Elfriede from a winery in the neighbouring Wagram region and they saw this as a great opportunity to make wines from two regions in one winery!

    Today their son, Ralph, is very much the driving force of the winery and his passion and enthusiasm really shine through his wines.

    They now have 18 hectares and don't aim to expand any further. Instead, their goal is to continue to be hands-on winegrowers and keep improving in quality, showcasing the uniqueness of their fantastic mineral terroir!
