ORIGIN

Our winery is based in Hagenbrunn from where we cultivate about 24 ha of vineyards located in Vienna and Austria’s Weinviertel.

Our largest vineyards are situated in Hagenbrunn, just outside Vienna’s city limits. We grow and produce mellow, mature white and red wines on the Lower Austrian and Viennese side of Bisamberg Hill, as well as racy Grüner Veltliner wines with a crisp acidity some 60 km north of Vienna close to the border to the Czech Republic. The differences between the vibrancy of Austria’s capital and rural seclusion, between sandstone (flysch) and lime, between Pannonian und continental climatic influences could not be greater.

Our story

Our name Schwarzböck stands for decades of dedication to agriculture and wine-making. In 2003 we, Anita and Rudolph Schwarzböck, decided to join forces and established the winery on Hauptstraße. It’s our goal and passion to produce unique terroir wines.

Our brand

Our brand stands for quality and sophistication. The buck symbolizes our passion and dynamics. The buck’s head looking back emphasizes our belief in sustainability and underlines how important it is to respect nature.

Our vineyards

Our vineyards are located right on the border of the wine-growing regions of Lower Austria and Vienna as well as on the border between two different climate zones. Around Bisamberg Hill there is a variety of soils, with flysch dominating. Flysch is a rock that tends to shift with marl-clay sediments between its layers. At the foot of Bisamberg Hill loess is the predominate soil. In pre-historic times, there was an ocean that once ended here depositing gravel and fossils in the limestone-rich soil. Bio-geographically speaking, Bisamberg Hill is where the central European climate with its Atlantic influences from the West meets the Pannonian climate from the East.

Our vineyards in the northern Weinviertel hide unsuspecting treasures as the climate is harsher and cooler there, but the soil is richer than around Bisamberg Hill.

The large-scale dispersion of our vineyards is the reason for our unique range of wines.

This vineyard covers a steep south-facing bowl-shaped area with a slope of more than 35 degrees. The sandy, dry soil forces vines to grow deep roots, which lends elegance and finesse to the wine.

Located in Enzersfeld (Weinviertel), this vineyard occupies the top of a hill covered with loess (with a proportion of clay and sand). It is planted with Grüner Veltliner vines.

This south-facing, loess covered vineyard was planted with Grüner Veltliner vines in 2013.

This southeast facing top vineyard is located in Hagenbrunn at the foot of Bisamberg Hill. The subsoil contains lime-rich sandstone with marl, which is partially covered with loess. The rocky ground warms up quickly producing mature grapes.

The varietals we cultivate on these 2.25 ha are Riesling, Grüner Veltliner und Pinot gris (Grauburgunder). The Aichleiten vineyard lends depth, finesse and minerality to the wine.

The Falkenberg vineyard (deep, sandy clay) is located on the eastern slopes of Bisamberg Hill in Stammersdorf, a district of Vienna.

The Proschen vineyard, planted on deep sandy clay, is located on the eastern slopes of Bisamberg Hill in Stammersdorf, a district of Vienna.

This vineyard covers a steep south-facing slope that is extremely rocky and contains a high percentage of lime. Vines were planted recently to produce yields by 2020.

Located in Stammersdorf, a district of Vienna, and covering the southern slope of a rolling hill that contains deep loess clay, this vineyard gets plenty of sunshine. Its deep loess soil retains precipitation very well and warms up quickly. It yields Grüner Veltiner grapes with an enormous extract content.

Vines are 35 years old.

The Sätzen vineyard is located at the foot of Veiglberg Hill where the soil consists of layers of deep loess and clay. Since the vineyard faces in an easterly direction, the morning suns warms up the ground early.

The vineyard is planted with 10 to 60 year old Grüner Veltliner vines. The grapes of the oldest vines are selected to produce the stock for our Weinviertel DAC Reserve.

This south-facing vineyard is planted with Yellow Muscat vines growing on loess soil.

In 2016 we harvested the last Grüner Veltliner grapes from this loess-covered vineyard. The vineyard produced savory, authentic Veltliners with great acidity and spicy aromas that we commemorated in our "Last Edition" wine.

Zwerchbreiten and Hochfeld are two vineyards located in Stammersdorf, a district of Vienna. They are facing south and grow on loess soil.

Located on the eastern slope of Veiglberg Hill, the Tagner vineyard covers the upper third of the hill that shows layers of flysch.

Here we cultivate Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt vines that are over 50 years old.

Our two vineyards In den Brüchen and In der Hofmauer stretch along the foot of Bisamberg Hill where the ground contains sandy loess.

The Plankenfeld vineyard (starting right behind the winery) grows on flysch. The Pöcken vineyard faces east and warms up early. It is bordered by forest on two sides.
