Three weeks, the harvest lasted with full commitment | the grapes promise "great wines" of the vintage 2015. Ideal weather conditions gave us extra-rich and healthy berries. The amount is not too big, is what one hand on the performed green harvest (reduction of each pergola to one or two per engine) and on the other hand due to the small berries, but we expect an excellent vintage with a lot of potential.
Paul Ivic & Weingut Schloss Halbturn at 3029 meters | A unique experience "creative art of vegetarian cooking" by Paul Ivic (Michelin star-winning chef of the TIAN Vienna) and the wines from Weingut Schloss Halbturn have led the series of events "delight" on the Kitzsteinhorn to "new heights" on 28.06.2015 . We accompanied a perfectly coordinated menu of the highest quality, which convinced the last critic of vegetarian cuisine, with our wines and our managing partner, Dieter Hoffmann-Unzog, communicated the guests a lot about the winery and the wines. It was an extraordinary and unusual experience to present and enjoy our wines to such a height. While the arrival over three lifts away to over 3,000 meters was not for everyone - the experience has, however, justified all the effort. Congratulations to the Kitzsteinhorn-team that has mastered everything extremely confidently.
