Vineyard: 32 acres. Authentic wines from an authentic region: Eisenberg / South Burgenland: This is probably the most unspoiled wine landscape of Burgenland, with some 1,230 acres of vineyards stretching from the town of Rechnitz in the North, to Güssing in the South. Authentic red wines are produced here, predominantly from Blaufränkisch that display subtle mineral spicy notes.
Jalits winery is a traditional family business. Since five generations, the family has been devoted to wine production. But only Mathias Jalits brought the wine-growing business to a professional track and has been responsible for the operation since 2001. He is supported by his family, especially his parents Anna and Alfred Jalits. "On the Eisenberg, we greatly benefit from the ideal circumstances for pressing incomparable wines which are typical for the region", says the winegrower. Mathias Jalits has found his own style: his wines are powerful, marked by the Eisenberg's minerality. "We focus on enhancing the traditional and we avoid making daring experiments. However, this doesn't mean that we completely reject new ideas and innovations. The traditional can always change for the better but one should never lose sight of the region's strengths", says Mathias Jalits about his philosophy.
