Born in Gols to a winemaking family, Paul Achs found himself working in California in the late 1980’s, where he developed an affinity for bolder wines, specifically Pinot Noir. He returned to join the family winery in 1990 and won the Falstaff “Winemaker of the Year” award just four years later. In 1994, Achs cofounded the Pannobile association to promote quality red wines from the village of Gols, focusing on local varieties Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt.

Originally seven members, the association now numbers nine and is responsible for mapping the soils and terroirs of the region and promoting local and natural winemaking. This association has served to improve the quality of the wines and also the perception they have in the marketplace.

Location of Vineyard

Located between the village of Gols and Lake Neusiedl, known as the Heideboden, is the winery’s source for fresh, young wines. On the sloping hills of the Parndorfer Platte, behind the village, are the winery’s single vineyards. The complex soil profiles combined with the southern exposure and the climatic influences are perfect for the production of world class red wines.

Winemaking Philosophy

Paul Achs produces wines that are simply impossible to resist and are essential as benchmarks for the red wines of this region. Respectful adaptation of traditional winemaking, paired with carefully chosen innovations, is core to the work at the Achs cellar. A focus on Blaufränkisch has evolved over the years and today the Austrian press celebrates Achs’ mastery of terroir and vinification. .Since 2007, Achs has also adopted biodynamic principles in his winery and is firmly convinced that this has resulted in wines with more purity and authenticity.
