Due to his decades of experience, IBY Anton IV is considered the “doyen and lobbyist” of Burgenland’s red wine winemakers. In his function as chairman of the VBM – Verband Blaufränkisch Mittelburgenland – he introduced the DAC Mittelburgenland, the first DAC of Burgenland, in 2005. His wife Hanni works more in the background, because her purpose in life is the vineyards. She dedicates her extraordinary knowledge and commitment to the most important basis of a winery, namely the vines.
The turnover grows continuously, as does the vineyard area – it now amounts to 30 hectares and the main customers for the award-winning IBY wines are the gastronomy in Austria and abroad. The family itself also grows:
In 2003 Anton V meets his Eva. Her communication talent is used in the company for organization and marketing. The two are married and proud parents of four children.
