WINZERIN / GESCHÄFTSFÜHRUNG

FRANZ TAFERNER

FOUNDER / WINEMAKER

Since he was a child, Franz loved to work at his parents farm but soon started to realize, that working in the vineyards instead of the crop fields, was the one thing that truly fullfilled him. 

So at the age of 14, Franz started his training to become a winemaker.

When he returned back home in 1989, he decided to rent out the farmland, sell all the livestock and invest his time and effort in his one true passion - making wine.

 

Franz Taferner ist Head Winemaker and CEO of Weingut Taferner.
