In a permanently changing world, where trends disappear just as quickly as they emerge, consistency is the key factor.
Mindful of this, Weingut Pöckl pursues its own philosophy, letting short-lived fads pass by and relying instead on the successful strategy of the tried and tested. The unique Pöckl wines are as unmistakable as their label. And the success of the family business, not to mention the numerous awards, proves that they are on the right track.
Expertise in winemaking would seem to be part of the Pöckl family’s DNA – the beginnings of the winery go right back to 1910. René Pöckl and his wife Eva are the fourth generation to run the estate, which has grown to 40 hectares over the years.
Red wine is their passion, and their goal is to refine its quality even further with every new vintage. Quantity is of less importance, which is why production of their exceptional red wines is often strictly limited. The Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah varieties in particular thrive superbly on the estate's iron-rich, sandy soils. Grapes are processed in a traditional and careful manner, avoiding cultured yeasts and enzymes, and with as little intervention as possible. They form the perfect basis for densely structured, elegant and age-worthy wines with fine tannins. Whichever wine you choose, you can be sure of a unique, long-lasting aroma.
The winery's cellar has been expanded over recent years in order to increase the quality even further. Staying true to the style, but fine-tuning wherever possible – that is the Pöckl family's resolution for a sustainable future.
