An introduction to the Hopler winery
The Hopler winery is located in Breitenbrunn on the western banks of lake Neusiedl, in the Austrian province of Burgenland. Our 43 hectares of cultivated vineyards face south east between the ‘Leithagebirge’ hills and Lake Neusiedl. This creates a warm, humid microclimate where grapes of the highest quality flourish. In addition the contrasting soils of chalk, gravel and sand are rich in calcium as well as in slate and contribute to the unique complexity and character of our wines.
Wines mature in either stainless steel tanks or large oak vats. Some red wines and a small quantity of white wines mature in barriques made of French oak.
Hopler's 46 hectares of vineyards are situated on the most prized sites in Burgenland: Kirchberg, Jungkirchberg, Schanz, Hirschäcker, Altvierholzer and Rosenberg. Different soils, such as clay, limestone, gravel or pre-historic rocks, aid the production of complex and full-bodied wines. These sites are amongst the oldest in Burgenland.
