Year after year, the Rosenhof winery has been pulling in many Austrian and International awards to the sweet wine paradise, Illmitz. But, Vinzenz Haider and his son, Reinhard, not only excel at producing the 'dolce vita', sweet wines with distinction such as Beerenauslese (BA), Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA), and several Eiswein (Ice wine). They are also offering an extended portfolio of dry white and red wines made from the grapes they grow in some of the best vineyards around Illmitz on more than 35 acres. The Rosenhof estate is set amidst one of the most beautiful European sceneries. It is located near Lake Neusiedlersee on one side and in a district with many smaller, shallow lakes on the other. This special natural environment makes this wine region one of only a handful of regions in the world where the grapes are affected by noble rot on a regular basis. No wonder Illmitz boasts many of the superstars of Austrian sweet wine production, including quite a few members of the larger Haider family.
