The Schödl family originally built their farm at the end of World War II as a mixed agriculture and wine operation, it was then transformed into a vineyard and winemaking focused operation in the 1980’s by Hubert Schödl, a winemaking professor. Since 2012 the winery has been run by his children Matthias, Leonhard and Viktoria. Nestled between Vienna and the Czech Republic the Weinviertel region is influenced by the Danube and March rivers and a Pannonian climate of hot, dry summers and dry, cold winters. The resulting grapes reach full ripeness and maintain refreshing acidity.
