Just thirty minutes north of Vienna, in the town of Stetten, is one of the most well-recognised names in the Austrian wine business, Weingut Pfaffl. The story of Pfaffl began in 1978, when Roman Pfaffl, affectionately known as Mr. Veltliner due to his pioneering role in popularisng Grüner Veltliner, set about transforming a simple two-acre farm into a winery. Today, the winery stretches out over 270 acres, with parcels of vines embedded like tiny islands between fields, forests and villages, each with their own soil type and microclimate. From the light and playful to the concentrated and powerful, each wine produced has its own character and expresses a unique terroir.
