The region around the Neusiedlersee (Seewinkel, Illmitz) is one of the three great wine-growing areas (also Sauternes and Tokaj) where premium-quality Botrytis wines are able to be produced each year. The warmth of the Pannonian climate, as well as that of the vast, flat Neusiedlersee (Lake Neusiedl) and its numerous surrounding tiny lakes, create in the Fall the perfect conditions for the development of the renowned “noble rot” – the Botrytis – on the grapes. The sandy, light soils deliver the necessary minerality and are perfect for the Sämling, Chardonnay, Muskat Ottonel and Zweigelt grape varieties. And the cool nights here are responsible for the incomparable acidity structure, which provides optimal balance to the wines ́ residual sugar. The area around the Neusiedlersee, with its fauna and flora, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Reeds from the lake ́s shores are used for the production of Schilfwein.
The production of sweet wines is Hans Tschida ́s passion. Besides the Spätlese and Auslese wines, the high-quality Beerenauslese (BA), Schilfwein and Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA) are produced, mainly from the varieties Sämling, Chardonnay, Welschriesling, Muskat Ottonel or Zweigelt. The sweet wines are filled into slim, high 375 ml bottles, but are available in big bottles (Magnum) as well. The wines are matured mainly in steel tanks – and more seldom in barriques, because the varietal character and fruitiness of the wines play a big role.
