Domäne Roland Chan is the realisation of a dream of Roland Müksch and his family in 2017 – the creation of a boutique winery featuring the dry wall terraces in the heart of the Wachau. The terraces are toiled manually with deep respect for nature. The wines are a pure expression of the cultural heritage landscape. Since 2019 member of the Vinea Wachau.
At Domäne Roland Chan we have always taken an approach that deeply respects nature. We are restoring and maintaining old vineyards and maintain and construct the traditional dry walls for our terraces, providing a natural habitat for local fauna and flora. We subscribe to the local initiative of the use of pheromone traps to avoid certain pesticides. We use the “Wachau mixture”, a specially developed combination of grasses and plants, that enriches the environment for insects whilst providing natural fertiliser for the vines. We do not use herbicide and condemn this practice as unnecessary and highly damaging to the ecosystem, but manually cut the grass between the vines. We hang up reflective bird deterrents and use sheep wool to deter deer. The use of the Leova Smart posts in our vineyards – remote online weather stations and fungal pressure measurement systems – enables us to use a measured approach for our spraying regime.
Domäne Roland Chan is excited to share the bonanza of stellar scores from James Suckling for our 2021 vintage.

Our Federspiel wines are our entry level wines , but without compromise on quality and dedication. The wines are still in tank and will only be bottled in July, making this result even more remarkable, giving much anticipation to this fantastic vintage.
