A SHORT FORAY THROUGH OUR HISTORY
Life gave me the task of awakening the small winery with the historic Kränzelhof estate dating back to 1108, which my mother bequeathed to me, from its 200-year slumber.
Full of zeal and enthusiasm, I set about gently dusting off the ancient farm and restoring it, planting new vineyards and renovating cellars and farm buildings using only the income I had earned myself.
In 1985, I bought the first 6 barrique barrels during my trip through Bordeaux. In 1986 I renovated the old, dilapidated mill and installed a quaint wine tavern in it, which was later transformed into an exquisite restaurant together with Othmar Raich.
When my wife and I traveled through England in the early 2000s, we were so fascinated by the gardens there that we took it into our heads to add a unique garden landscape to the Kränzelhof. In 2006 we already opened the first part of the total of 7 gardens.
