The winery Salzl looks back on a long winegrowing tradition, the history of the family business dates back to 1840. Till Heribert Salzl, Josef Salzl’s father, took over the business, the agricultural farm was engaged in mixed farming. However, Heribert, as one of the first farmers in the area, focused more and more on winegrowing and concentrated on white and dessert wines. He caused quite a stir with several gold medals.
Due to the realignment of the production to high quality red wines, Josef Salzl laid the foundation for today’s success in the 1980s. In 2000 Josef Salzl succeeded to get among Austrian’s best 50 red wines right at his first try at a wine award. Since 2005 his son Christoph is also working on the winery full time. He is taking over the obligations step by step to carry on the family tradition. Our team of employees supports us in the vineyard, the winery and in sales, performing outstanding work and sharing our philosophy for many years.
