PULKAU

 

... rich in history and full of vigorous life!

 


Pulkau is an ancient wine-growing town that looks back at century-long traditions. Even as early as 1025, the Augustinian Monastery in St. Pölten imposed a "Zehntrecht" (Tenth) religious levy tax on the Pulkau region. Between 1216 and 1220, it is recorded that Count Kondrad von Hardegg presented the Pulkau parish with two vineyards Vinea in loco qui dicitur Haselpor. This is therefore the first mention of our very own Ried Haselparz, a top-vineyard site for the Zweigelt variety.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PULKAU

 

The town of Pulkau has enjoyed the charm of a town since the 13th Century. It possesses monuments that date back to the "Donauschule" (Danubian school artists) art movement, that was highly effective in capturing Austrian romanticism. Art lovers across the world are drawn to local Pulkau attractions, such as St. Michael's Church, with its ossuary, and the gothic Church of The Holy Blood, with its fine winged altar. In a nutshell, Pulkau has a wealth of history, is significant for the history of art, and is vibrant and full of life.
