About the Winery:
Wine is a great commonality in the Markowitsch family. The knowledge of wine and the art of shaping and maturing it, as well as the passion for this ancient craft. Even as children, both daughters of the house were allowed to look after five vines each, which they nurtured and cared for. From them, they learned how their parents experienced their daily work and that it takes more than two hands to manage a vineyard.

Markowitsch is a family winery through and through – convinced of what they do, uncompromising and also a little purist. The grapes come exclusively from our own vineyards. This ensures the freedom to shape the wines the way they love them: clear, elegant and timelessly valid.

“What makes my job so special and rewarding is the daily immersion in nature. Deadlines and hectic pace lose their effect when I make my way through the rows of vines.” Gerhard Markowitsch
