Since 1839 the vineyard Prechtl exists in Zelln village in Retzer land. The family is now led by Di Franz Prechtl.
The winemaker attaches great importance to natural viticulture – the know-how he acquired at the University of soil culture. With his wife Petra, a wine scholar, he has the ideal partner. Son Franz is 16 years and is happy to help with his sister Maria (13 years) in summer and cafe. Paul (14 years) is interested in wine making and has visited the wine-growing school in Klosterneuburg since autumn 2012.
