European Winery of the Year 2016
There are few wine estates that have achieved so much growth, produced such a diverse range of wines and garnered so many awards as this. And the Pfaffls will point to their strong family cohesiveness as the reason for their success. Their intergenerational bonds aren’t just for the cameras. The Pfaffls really do have a good relationship that gives every member space to develop as they wish. Roman Josef Pfaffl has the say in the cellar, his sister Heidi Fischer runs the office, their father Roman Pfaffl manages the vineyards and their mother Adelheid Pfaffl is already looking after the next generation. “That way, we work in harmony with each other, and it’s great fun too” say the Pfaffls – and they mean it. You can see it too in the Pfaffls’ wines that are consistently produced at high quality year on year.
