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 Hommage is Pfaffl's (and perhaps Austrian) best Grüner Veltliner coming from the DAC Wienviertel Reserve. All the knowledge of Roman and Adelheid's father about wine is in here. Not only the wine, but also the label clearly bears his signature. It is his personal tribute to Grüner Veltliner and his career as a winemaker. For this, only the best grapes from age-old vineyards in the Großebersdorfer Kirchenberg and partly from a selection from the Haidviertel site were used, because they give this wine the right freshness. The spontaneous fermentation in acacia wood barrels and the long storage on the yeast (sur lie) contribute to the fact that the HOMMAGE is without doubt the largest Veltliner from Pffafl
