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 - Niederösterreich 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. Today, Pfaffl is an international symbol for Grüner Veltliner. They have even been voted European Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.

Niederösterreich is the region around the capital Vienna and is the largest wine-growing region in Austria. Loess soils, warm days and cool nights. This is ideal for getting wines with character. Fruit but also nice acidity. The chardonnay grapes are destemmed and crushed after picking. They undergo a 12 hour peel soak before pressing. 50% of the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the other 50% is fermented in large acacia barrels.

In the glass, the Pfaffl Chardonnay has a fresh, slightly golden yellow color. In the nose fresh notes of pineapple, pear, vanilla and banana. In the mouth this very pleasant and drinkable white wine is fruity with a soft roundness with notes of butter, cinnamon and banana. A delicious wine to enjoy stand-alone and an excellent accompaniment to veal in a mustard sauce.

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 region. Before 1978, the Pfaffl farm was dominated by grain, potatoes, and livestock. A lot has changed in a short time. Today, Pfaffl is an international symbol for Grüner Veltliner. They have even been voted European Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.

In forty years, Weingut Pfaffl has grown from 0.75 hectares to 110 hectares of vineyard. While the majority of the wines were first served in their local restaurant, wine lovers all over the world now drink wines from Pfaffl.

Today the winery is run by the enthusiastic Roman Pfaffl Jr. and Heidemarie Fischer. With over 1.4 million bottles on an annual basis, Pfaffl is a serious company, with a very high degree of professionalism. This is not only reflected in the wines, but also everything around it. Roman and Heidi have their affairs in order very well. Whether it's the website, the fast customer service, or the modern vineyard techniques, nothing is left to chance to create a total experience.

The vineyards of Pfaffl are spread over 12 villages with a very striking diversity in terroir. The different Grüner Veltliners that Pfaffl makes best reflect these terroir differences. For example, the Zeisen vineyard is even located on a 'Chablis-like' fossil substrate. Besides Grüner Veltliner, Pfaffl is known for its Gemischter Satz (several white grape varieties from one vineyard) and elegant red wines from Zweigelt and Pinot Noir.

Both in the business operations and the wines of Pfaffl, the core values ​​​​of young, pure, and refreshing come into their own. Pfaffl was named Best Austrian Producer in 2022 by the Frankfurt International Trophy. Earlier this year they received the same award from Mundus Vini. Founder Roman Pfaffl meant so much to Austrian viticulture and in particular the Grüner Veltliner that he was nicknamed Mister Veltliner. His son Roman Pfaffl Jr. has followed in his footsteps and still fully lives up to that reputation.
