Winery Franz & Christine Netzl
Göttlesbrunn . Carnuntum . Austria
WINE & THOUGHTS
Our personal goal is to grow our grapes with particular attention to their origin, soil and climate, and to reflect this in the wines through a very gentle vinification.
WINE & PEOPLE
In the heart of the wine-growing region Carnuntum - in the wine-growing village of Göttlesbrunn, Franz & Christine built up our winery from a mixed farm with a lot of vision and innovation. Today Christina and her parents Franz & Christine vinify wines full of character, finesse and, above all, profoundness.

WINE & GARDENS
On the rolling hills of the Arbesthal ridge, our vines grow and mature in the distinctive locations of Carnuntum. The nearby Danube and the warm Pannonian lowlands around Lake Neusiedl, characterize our region. The warm air flows from the east lead to high ripeness of the grapes and the cool winds from the north (especially during the night) preserve the freshness, fruit and spice - a unique combination for our characteristic wines. Therefore it is our goal - as a member of the Austrian traditional wineries - to work with the characteristics of the individual vineyards and to highlight them in our wines. Only the names of the best sites for the typical Carnuntum varieties may adorn our label.
WINE & ORIGIN
“No enjoyment is temporary ,
because the impression it leaves is enduring.“
(j.w. von goethe)
So is our wine growing region Carnuntum, because it is unique in many ways. Through the distinctive location & climate on the one hand, but also because of our history, when the Romans influenced our region, not only with their drinking culture but also with their magnificent buildings of the legion city Carnuntum, which they left with us. This is shown with the Heidentor - the former triumphal arch as an entrance to the Roman City - as a symbol of our wine-growing region Carnuntum.
