History and Tradition

Otto Velich founded the Velich wine estate in 1933 in the village of Apetlon. Since then, it has grown as a family business. In the following decades, not much changed at our winery residence. In 1990, the production facilities were professionally intensified and expanded. In 2006, an ensemble of old customs houses in the immediate vicinity was purchased. We restored one of them, paying special attention to the historic details. Since summer 2010, it has been available to our guests as the elegant Velich residence.

Every year, between 60,000 and 80,000 bottles of wine are produced at the Velich wine estate. This is little for Austrian standards – but very good with regard to quality.
