The Kracher Winery lies in the Seewinkel area of Austria's Burgenland. Here, through the evaporative periods of Lake Neusiedl, the evening fog and the warm Pannonian climate, continuous warm-humid weather patterns are dominant and, therefore, allow for Botrytis cinerea to be generated. Once headed up by the legendary winemaker Alois Kracher, today his legacy is continued by the current generation winemaker Gerhard Kracher.
The special love with which Kracher treats the different grape varieties, along with his tireless efforts that encompass both tradition and innovation, plus his courage to walk - representing a small family business - amongst the big wine dynasties of the world brought the Kracher family estate countless awards and vast recognition. Not the least of the tributes was Alois Kracher being honoured by Great Britain´s renowned Wine Magazine with the coveted "Wine Maker of the Year" title for an impressive seven times - in 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2006 and 2008.
