Stunning sweet wines – 7 times Wine Magazine’s winemaker
Located in the Seewinkel sub-region of the Burgenland, the estate of Alois Kracher is known world over for the production of simply stunning sweet wines – a fact that has seen him voted Wine Magazine’s winemaker of the year on no less than 7 occasions over the last 25 years. The close proximity of Lake Eusiedl provides Alois with the perfect growing conditions to fashion between 10 & 15 Trockenbeernauslesen cuvees each vintage, from a selection of grape varieties including Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Traminer, Scheurebe, Muskat-Ottonel and even Zweigelt!
Lesser known are Alois’ dry wines – but we can confirm that they are no less impressive! Pick of the bunch is arguably his Welschriesling, showcasing minerality, freshness and energy in abundance.
