In addition to the exceptional white wines ("Weissl Kreuz" and Chardonnay, which is also available as a barrique) produced by Engelbert Gesellmann and his son Albert at their winery in Deutschkreutz, the name “Gesellmann” stands for top quality red wines.
Since the beginning of the 1990s, their Blaufränkisch wines have primarily been shaped by their impressive fineness and gentle tannin base. The heaviest of the Blaufränkisch wines is currently the "Creitzer", which requires some time to develop fully. This also applies to the "Opus Eximium" cuvée which was first produced in 1988 and has already become a trademark of the Gesellmann Winery. This wine is a blend of Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and St. Laurent grapes which are stored in barriques of various origins. Another trademark is the “Bela Rex” cuvée, first produced in 1992, which quickly positioned itself as one of the best Austrian red wines.
1997 represented a milestone for the Gesellmann Winery with the launch of "G", a wine made from the autochthonous Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent vines. The grapes used in this wine come from selected vines with small berries.
In the summer of 1999 the Gesellmann Winery opened its new tasting room, and the maturing room for the barriques was also opened up to the public.
