Esterhazy Wines: A 250 year-old Austrian winery coming to the U.S.

April 18, 2011

Prestigious wines introduced to the U.S. market

It all started in 1758 when Countess Maria Lunati-Visconti, the spouse of Prince Paul II, Anton Esterházy, gave instructions to plant Pinot Noir vines from Burgundy in Burgenland. JOSEPH HAYDN, the world-renowned Esterhazy court musician, took a portion of his salary in the form of wine in 1789. The Esterhazy estate, half an hour east of Vienna, Austria is still a center for fine dining and culture. As of 2011, the prestigious Esterhazy wines are now also available in the U.S. The ‘old’ newcomers have introduced themselves at glamorous events in New York, Washington D.C. and in Chicago. In Chicago over 40 VIPs from politics, the music scene and the press joined Franz Wessely and Elisabeth Kamper from the Esterhazy estate together with their U.S. distribution partner Manfred Bauer (Wein Bauer company) in a charming wine presentation.
