Weingut Künstler, Hochheim am Main
The Künstler estate winery has been a family-owned business since 1648. Until the end of World War II, the Künstler family ran its winery in Untertannowitz, a village 80 km north of the Austrian capital of Vienna, in South Moravia, which, these days, is part of the Czech Republic. After expropriation and expulsion from his homeland, Franz Künstler re-established his winery in Hochheim, Germany in 1965. Due to his philosophy of uncompromising quality, he did not have to wait long for success to arrive: his wines immediately started to receive praise at numerous wine tastings and were awarded a number of prizes. In 1992 the estate winery was passed on to his son Gunter.
The estate winery was originally set up in the family home where, due to healthy growth, it has expanded steadily. In 2006 its operational basis became the Art Nouveau villa that used to house Burgeff, the most eminent German producers of sparkling wine in previous times.
Aiming to provide ideal conditions for producing top-quality wines and to look after his customers in the best way possible, Gunter Künstler improved the wine cellars, the vineyard operations, the Vinothek wine shop and the function rooms. The current premises not only offer a unique, authentic ambiance but also sufficient space for the wine-making facilities and for our customers whom we are very happy to welcome to our wine shop and our function rooms.
