Zeilinger´s winery is located in the south-western part of the "Weinviertel", around 50km west of Vienna, in a little village named Hohenwarth at the foot of the mountain "Manhartsberg".

Hohenwarth

This mountain has an important influece on the micro climate of our area. Warm days and cold nights have a favorable effect on our grapes. In addition to environmentally friendly processing, we attach great importance to the quality of the grapes and the authenticity of our produce.

Our main variety of wine is the "Grüner Veltliner" - the red wine "Blauer Zweigelt". A special rarity of our area is the "Roter Veltliner". All our varieties have fruity, fresh characteristic.

Weinviertel - Home of the spicy Whites!

By introducing the DAC (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) system of controlled designation of origin Austria has, for the first time, rated the origin of grapes as of more significance than the grapes themselves. The Weinviertel (a geographical region in Lower Austria) has taken a decisive step towards a new era of wine labelling and therefore the Grüner Veltliner typical of its dry, spicy-fruity taste and its high quality proudly shows its origin as a Weinviertel dac wine.

The Weinviertel is Austria´s largest wine producing area; and indeed the Grüner Veltliner is the wine of the region with its 8000 ha, which accounts for more than 50 % of the vineyards. During the past years, the Grüner Veltliner received attention also in the international arena and it has increasingly become known as a high quality wine due to its spicy-fruity style. Understandable therefore that the Grüner Veltliner from the Weinviertel with its marked peppery taste has become Austria´s first DAC wine.
