The Paul Achs winery belongs to the illustrious circle the 5 Star Wineries of the Falstaff magazine. This top rating is only awarded to a very small proportion of Austrian wineries. Only the best of the best get these.
Paul Achs joined his parents' winery in 1991 and has gradually developed it into a red wine specialist, even if one should not forget the first-class whites. Dry red wines make up about 80% of the production at the biodynamic winery today. All red wines come from wooden barrels of various sizes, from barriques to large traditional barrels.
The approximately 25 hectares of vines, spread over 40 plots, are located around the village of Gols, on the north-eastern part of Lake Neusiedl. The top locations (Rieden in Austria) are Altenberg, Spiegel and Ungerberg, from which Blaufränkisch "Crus" are produced, which are among the very best red wines in Austria.
The Blaufränkisch is the most important grape variety in the Paul Achs range, there are also various others, the most important being Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zweigelt, as well as Chardonnay for high-quality whites. Everything is meticulously handcrafted at Paul Achs, after careful hand picking, all the berries are checked again at the sorting table for their ripeness and suitability before they are allowed to become a Paul Achs wine.
