Not just language is crossing borders here – vintners, too, are reaching far beyond the local. In rich images, the “house of stories” tells the story of Bildein, life on the border, and the history of Burgenland, which became Austria’s (youngest) state in 1921. The Krutzler vineyard revolves around the symbol of the “Perwolff,” the historic name of Deutsch-Schützen. The “oak barrel show room” at Schützenhof draws the gaze across gently curved barrels into the garden and over the trees. A balanced tannin texture with a delicate fruity dryness.
