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. Ideal for Zweigelt, Austria's most important blue grape. After fully manual harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and lightly crushed. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees in stainless steel tanks for 26 days. The juice is pumped over regularly to extract more flavor and color. After fermentation, 30% of the wine matures for several months in oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel. In the glass, the Pfaffl Zwiegelt is ruby red with fresh and fresh notes of black cherries, sour cherries, berries and some spices in the nose. In the mouth it is fresh and juicy. The wine is round and supple with lots of ripe dark fruit (cherries, berries) and soft tannins. The Pfaffl Zweigelt is versatile, for example with grilled steak or pizza with salami. Also delicious with spaghetti bolognese.
