Hans Tschida is a "stay at home" winemaker, who greatly enjoys tending to his 25 hectares of vineyards in the quaint winemaking town of Illmitz on the right bank of Neusiedlersee. It is a place that seems to have been created to produce great sweet wines, with foggy autumn mornings giving way to dry sunny afternoons, producing perfect conditions for the development of noble rot (botrytis cinerea).
He produces a full range of wines, right up to the luscious delights of very sweet wines like the Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA), for which he is perhaps most famous.
At the 2013 International Wine Challenge (IWC) his hard work and commitment to absolute quality was fully recognised with 19 mendals and 5 Trophies including Dessert Wine of the Year and Sweet Winemaker of the Year. The IWC also named him “Sweet winemaker of the year” again in 2015.
