A symbiosis between Burgenland and France. From the terroir of the Seewinkel and a French understanding of good food.


Because we are closely connected with France. Because the inhabitants of our village are called "French" in the neighboring communities. Because we work on our winery with Chardonnay, a French grape. Because we love French food and the French understanding of gastronomy. That's why France had to become part of our gastronomic vision.

At the same time, we have a deep connection with our region. The Seewinkel and its treasures are an integral part of our philosophy. Tasting the terroir of a region is part of our understanding of what makes good, what makes great cuisine. Whether it's eel from the lake for breakfast, eggs from the godmother in the cookie or tomatoes from Erich Stekovics for dîner. Our cuisine is deeply rooted in the terroir of the region.


A symbiosis between Burgenland and France. A harmonious overall concept that combines Seewinkel terroir and Burgenland tradition with a French understanding of good food. At the breakfast table, at afternoon tea in the café or at dinner in the restaurant.
