In 1978, Roman and Adelheid Pfaffl became early owners of Weingut Pfaffl in Stetten, a village just north of Vienna in the Weinviertel region. Before 1978, Pfaffl farm was all about grain, potatoes and cattle.
A lot has changed in a short time. Today, Pfaffl is an international symbol for Grüner Veltliner.
They have even been voted European Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.
