Red Wine, Passion, Exceptional
Family Tradition for Over 100 Years

Our Wines

Red wines are our passion. They best express our understanding of exceptional winemaking.


Tradition for Over 100 Years

The history of our winery begins in 1910 with the return of Albert Pöckl from his 10-year stay in Minnesota, USA. He laid the foundation for our farm, which at the time consisted of farming, livestock and winemaking. Together with his wife Katharina, he also ran the village tavern.

In 1945, Albert’s son Theodor Pöckl took over the business and began focusing more and more on winemaking. Theodor and his wife Magdalena expanded the business to 10 hectares, providing a good basis for the further development of our winery, which their son Josef enthusiastically drove forward.

We Have Everything We Need Right Here

Our most important partners in creating top wines are the soil and the weather. The weather can be unpredictable, so you always have to keep an eye on it. That is why we keep our vineyards close by so that we can react appropriately and quickly to difficult circumstances such as drought, hail, storms or frost.

Be it sand, gravel, loam or black earth with gravel, we know the exact nature of our soils in and around Mönchhof and we know where which grapes grow best. Our many years of experience with the different vineyard locations allow us to carry out the necessary work in harmony with nature and to produce the highest quality grapes.

The sunny climate and rich soils of our region, together with the grape varieties favored in our area, provide the basis for creating exciting and delicious wines.

Vinyards, Soils & Climate



January 1


A challenging year marked by unstable weather and the effects of Corona. Thanks to their strong roots, the vineyards withstood the extreme temperatures. However, this created a risk for good quality with a lower quantity.
January 1


Like in 2003, 2018 began with the grapes ripening rapidly. The rain in September caused some urgency, yet the grape harvest was satisfactory despite the challenges.
January 1


After a frosty start, the weather developed positively. The grapes were prefectly ripe for the harvest and ideal for creating promising wines.
January 1


A severe frost in the spring significantly reduced the harvest quantity. Early budding and frost damage influenced the vintage. Nevertheless, the quality of the grapes was satisfactory.
January 1


A hot, dry summer that even required irrigation. The saving rain finally came in August, leading to the grapes ripening beautifully. In turn, the autumn was dry and provided healthy, fully ripe grapes.
January 1


The summer was less sunny, with occasional hot days. The autumn was extremely humid and rainy. Careful selection of the grapes allowed for excellent Classique wines, even though the harvest quantity was low. There were no top Pöckl wines this year.
January 1


July was exceptionally hot. In mid-July, the first leaves in the vineyard began to turn yellow. We had to irrigate again for the first time in many years. At the end of July/beginning of August, the temperatures reached almost 40 °C. Mid-August saw cooler nights, rain and temperatures normal for the season.
January 1


The 2012 vintage started with extreme temperature fluctuations. Freezing temperatures as low as -15 °C were followed by summer temperatures of around +20 °C. The spring was generally dry. Flowering began on May 23rd, about two weeks earlier than normal. Despite a regenerating rain in the second half of July, dryness was present until the harvest in mid/late October. The drought stress before the flowering resulted in smaller berries and clusters, which in turn produced healthy and high-quality grapes.
January 1


An exceptionally dry spring laid the foundation for this vintage. The Zweigelt and Pinot Noir grapes began to flower at the end of May, which was around two weeks earlier than usual. The summer brought warmth, but was punctuated by cool weeks in late July/early August that slowed the rapid ripening of the grapes. Nevertheless, the perfect autumn weather allowed for an early harvest starting October 6th.
January 1


2010 was challenging. Grape shatter occurred during the flowering and the grapes ripened later than normal. This vintage was characterized by lower yields but a pleasing grape quality.
January 1


The weather again played an important role. The warmth and dryness with a long Indian summer extending into October resulted in dark, strong wines with characteristic tannins. Comparable to the vintages 2000, 2003 and 2006.
January 1


2008 was humid and wet until just before the harvest. Despite these challenges, we were rewarded with a beautiful autumn. The wines present wonderful fruit and promise excellent development over time.
January 1


2007 was again characterized by remarkably good conditions, comparable to 2009. Warm and dry weather conditions were favorable for the wine production.
