Family & philosophy

We, the Hagn family, have been growing wine for over 300 years. The most important thing is our strong family bond: We always pull together – and it’s worth it: We have had the pleasure of winning numerous awards in a wide variety of competitions. Since 2007 more than 15 of our wines have been awarded prizes in the SALON Austria Wine competition, including one SALON winner. Then there are more than 11 provincial wins and the nomination as Wine Estate of the Year at the Lower Austrian wine awards. In 2016, we were the first and only winery in Austria to receive this award for the fourth time running. As you can see, things are going well for us here in Mailberg!

Leo Hagn jun. and Wolfgang Hagn jun. have been responsible for the wine estate since 2006. In keeping with our family history, they develop the wine estate with consideration for the environment and with the next generations and the future in mind. You can usually find Leo somewhere between the vines and the wine barrels. His wife Elisabeth looks after the online shop orders. Wolfgang attends events and thinks up new marketing strategies. Carina, Wolfgang’s wife, has been taking care of the Hagn Weindomizil home of wine including restaurant and guest rooms since 2009. She also travels the world to make sure people can enjoy Hagn wines everywhere, from Europe to Russia and as far as China.

Wolfgang Sr., Wolfgang’s father, our big boss, keeps a watchful eye on everything: logistics, sales, finance and all work in progress, to make sure everything runs smoothly. You can find his wife Roswitha either in the office with us or at a wine tasting with you in the wine gallery. Leo sen. handed over his position as cellar master to his son-in-law Leo in 2006 – now he keeps an eye on what’s happening on the wine estate. And because he makes personal deliveries, he is also well known among our local customers and always a welcome face. His wife Maria looks after regional wine shops and helps us in the office.

Our long-standing colleagues Birgit, Doris and Vanessa, the office superstars, have been part of the family for a long time!

And last but not least, Emma & Rico, our cheerful welcoming committee.

Mailberg – the location

The small market town of Mailberg is one of the best-known wine-growing towns in the north-western Weinviertel region. It is situated in the middle of a deep, wind-protected valley, the Pulkautal valley. The vines are particularly happy on the sun-drenched slopes. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta knew this a long time ago and started growing wine here as early as 1140. The soils of the Mailberg Valley are very chalky and covered with loamy sand and loess. This, combined with our special microclimate, gives the wines their distinctive fresh and spicy aroma and produces a great diversity of varieties.

In addition to the classic Grüner Veltliner variety, widely known as Weinviertel DAC and Weinviertel DAC Reserve, the 300 hectares of vineyards present excellent conditions for Chardonnay, Gelber Muskateller, Welschriesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Mailberg is also known as the “red wine island”, and we are particularly delighted to have won the Lower Austrian Wine Award five times in a row with our Blauer Zweigelt.

We have around 50 hectares of vine growing area. Mailberg’s most important and best-known location, the Hundschupfen, is immediately next to our wine estate. On this sandy south-facing slope, the grapes can mature slowly well into autumn thanks to the many hours of sunshine – ideal conditions for the Grüner Veltliner.
