As of 1 April, Annika Hoffmann (40) takes over the agendas of WINERY FÖRTHOF as managing director and cellar master. Hoffmann completed studies in Viticulture & Enology in Geisenheim, Germany. The Austrian-by-choice has lived and worked in the Wachau region for 14 years. Young, dynamic and successful, Hoffmann draws on a wealth of expertise gained at renowned wineries in Germany and Austria. "It's a wonderful job. When can you build a winery from scratch?" enthuses Hoffmann. "I am well versed in wine, but the subject of fine spirits is exciting and new to me. Fortunately, I have the active support of a colleague who has many years of “spirited” experience." The 2021 vintage will be the first to be produced entirely by WINERY FÖRTHOF, from pruning to bottling.
WINERY FÖRTHOF is in good hands
