Description 1 of 1

After having split the parental winery in 1992 between sister Birgit and Michaela Haas, she is in charge of the original winery located in Straß together with her husband Erich. A lot has been done ever since. As the old cellar was too small, it needed to be replaced by a completely new one. What had been created is a three floor cellar construction, where the concept of the free fall could be very well used; the old, existing wooden barrel cellar was cleverly integrated. Modification work at the old press house has also been completed. Since summer 2001, a new tasting and sales room exists. In addition to that, one apartment and a double room forms part of the offer for clients and wine friends. Furthermore, the size of the whole operation has been extended to 18 hectares. What the winegrowers especially like is the new construction at the „Zöbinger Heiligenstein“, having again been cultivated with much love and care in a 30 year old tradition. The old stone terraces could thus be preserved. For Michaela and Erich, the origin principle is held in high esteem, meaning that the foundation for their high quality wines is to be found already in the vineyards. The proper soil for each grape variety to benefit from the regional strengths. Thus, dense wines rich in finesse with a typical grape variety character can grow. Whereas, in the first years, the „Grüner Veltliner“ was the centre of attention, the winegrowers managed to make themselves an internationally renowned name by their Riesling wines from the Gaisberg and the Heiligenstein as well as the Grauburgunder and Chardonnay Barrique wines. Being an economist by profession, Michaela Haas is responsible for the marketing activities. For 10 years now, trade fairs abroad as well as national fairs are have been visited. By now, the winery can refer to a whole number of various awards and successful tasting events. Within only a couple of years, the number of wines to be exported could be raised from 0 to 50% (most important export countries: Germany, USA, Finland, Switzerland, Canada and Norway) – Description from dvoristanac
