“Stand up to your traditions and do not undermine them.” A philosophy that the Wellanschitz family still stands by aer 50 years.
The work of the winemaker is full of humility and awe. Any manipulation, falsification or acquisition, which would alter the cultural asset of the wine are prohibited at Wellanschitz vineyards.
The Mittelburgenland offers a variety of soil structures thanks to its unique geography. The Ödenburg mountain range, on the Hungarian border, is defined by its smouldering slate and orthogneiss. In the lowlands, it is dominated by clay soil. The interaction of the elements over millennia forms the substrate for vines and fruits that create the precise character of Wellanschitz wine.
