In 1978, Roman and Adelheid Pfaffl became owners of Weingut Pfaffl at a young age in Stetten, a village just north of Vienna in the Weinviertel - Lower Austria region. Before 1978, the Pfaffl farm was dominated by the cultivation of grains, potatoes and the rearing of cows and pigs. A lot has changed in a short time and Pfaffl is currently one of the highest peaks in Austria. Pfaffl was named Best Austrian Producer in 2022 by the Frankfurt International Trophy. Earlier this year they received the same award from Mundus Vini. At Parker (the Wine Advocate) they belong to the highest scoring producer with their entire range.

The Burg vineyards lie at the foot of the famous Kreuzenstein Castle. South facing with flysch soils: alternating marl, sandstone and loess. Vines that are 23 years old. Individual grape selection and very late harvest for extra ripeness. Aging in 70% new and 30% used barrique, for 18 months. Only selected, very ripe grapes are bottled here! Incredibly deep and powerful. It really has a lot of power and spicy. This Reserve Zweigelt Burg has aromas of black cherries with silky tannins, a hint of resin of pine, mint and spicy notes.
