The Flieger is a new wine for us , because the vineyards are new for us. New and old at the same time: The vines were planted decades ago into the pure schist rock and we onlg got the chance work with them since two years.
Our Winery In Real Time
Dear friends of premium taste,
In our blog we show you what we are up to. Information concerning events, stories covering our wines and short travel reports, will be posted here as often as possible.
Have a look around!
After a break of planting in 2021 we started a new vineyard project this year. Besides the Blaufränkisch on its favourite place, the Gritschenberg, we also chose to plant an often-underestimated grape variety which has a high standing at the winery: Neuburger.
“Actually, I always wanted to do just one wine.” That was the goal which was missed the most at the winery Markus Altenburger. That is due to the for Burgenland typical big grape variety and the various terroir types in Jois. However, we cannot completely tell us to be free of guilt.
Our most famous white wine, who is extremely popular with our customers because of the great price-performance ratio, did not only change in the design. The symbol on the label comes from the depot of white wine which we pressed on paper, like we did for all our new labels.
For our young and adventurous team, we are temporary looking for dedicated and studious people, who want to burn off energy during harvest 2021.
The Jungenberg is a timeless beauty, who tolerates ripeness but doesn’t need it. And as if the name is program, you get the feeling that the people who deal with it or also drink it stay forever young.
We are making a mess instead of adulterate wine.
Cremant, Pétillant, méthode ancestrale, brut, perlage, dosage... when it is about sparkling wines, the used language is always French. There is even a French word that describes the opening of a Champagne with a sabre (everybody should try this once; it feels pretty cool) – “sabering”. Are you kidding me?
Clothes make the man is the common quote. And a good glass makes a good wine a little bit better.
After a wine tasting or a long night there is nothing better than a good coffee.
“Those grapes were heroes” With this quote there was a new title born for a new wine, which you can still find on the back label auf the “Markus Altenburger red Leithaberg DAC”.
The current vintage 2017 of our Blaufränkisch Gritschenberg is our personal darling, a milestone in our red wine vinification and one of those vintages people will still talk about in years.
It is always exciting when a new vintage of a wine is released to the market, both for the winemaker and the customers.
We are looking back at the vintage with the comfy feeling to have made the best out of it. and we know that the hard work paid off and was definitely neccessary.
The long waiting comes to an end – harvest 2020 started today!
In this blog entry we won´t just present you the wine, but also one of our valuable employee
In summer 2012 we decided: We will make ONE Rosé! One that has never existed before, one that is perfect pairing with dishes, one that is long-lasting but also fresh and suitable for all occasions. Of course this didn`t work out.
At last its getting warm and hot again and summer is coming. In our vineyards the greening sprouts already, and the blossoming will start soon. Tension is rising! With our wines we are already prepared best for high temperatures. The 2016 RoSées a...

The week after Easter, in a one time initiative, all vintners of Jois distributed 500 big straw bales in the vineyards. These where lighted during the night from 20th to 21st April. The dense smoke protected the fresh shoots from the night frost. ...
