Blaufränkisch Kirchberg, 2015
Kirchberg is our signature vineyard, steeped in history and originally planted in 1203 by the Cistercian monks from Burgundy. Here our vines are able to ripen to their perfect balance, touched by our Pannonian climate and basking in the reflection of the beautiful Lake Neusiedl.
