From the vineyards of his 40ha estate in Illmitz, on the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl, ‘Luis’ Kracher created some of the world´s most acclaimed botrytised sweet wines.

His outstanding range of Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese and other late harvest wines captured the imagination and palates of sommeliers, restaurateurs, wine critics and writers around the world.

So significant were his talents and influence on other Austrian sweet winemakers, that Kracher helped catapult Austrian sweet wines to the ranks of other world greats, including German TBAs, Sauternes and Tokaji. (Decanter Magazine).
