They skillfully interpret the estate's unique and centuries-old heritage, blending it with contemporary practices to stay at the forefront of the industry. This approach consistently earns Esterhazy numerous awards and accolades, both at home and abroad, validating their commitment to quality.

The illustrious history of the House of Esterházy traces back to the 13th century, and it was officially established by Emperor Leopold I in 1687. The magnificent Esterházy palace in Eisenstadt, a masterpiece of baroque architecture designed by the renowned Italian architect Carlone, was completed in 1683. The Esterházy princes were not only known for their high level of education and patronage of arts, music, and science but also for their grand royal household, leaving a lasting impression on illustrious guests like Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Empress Maria Theresia held a particular fondness for the wine produced in the mild climate around the lake and refined in the cellars of Esterházy. Even the world-famous composer, Joseph Haydn, expressed his admiration by requesting part of his court musician salary to be paid in wine, as documented in 1789. Such historical connections further highlight the estate's enduring significance and contribution to culture and society.

"The wine exhibits a pale straw yellow color. Its aromatic profile delights with a medley of fresh and exotic scents, including quince, pear, and grapefruit, with a hint of white pepper. The lively acidity blends with a crisp body, while a subtle chalky minerality adds an intriguing dimension to the long finish."
