A glance into the archives...

The winery Conrad Fürst & Söhne attracted attention during the last year mainly for two reasons.
On the one hand, the success of Pod Stolpom 2010 has shown that Alois Gross' top quality standards lead us the right way. On the other hand, the "renaissance" of the Conrad Fürst & Söhne brand under its old name has also raised the interest of many, especially in the city of Ptuj and its surroundings.

One of our hobbies is doing research in order to reconstruct our company's history. Recently, we have made an unexpected discovery in this respect. The Ptuj city archives have a great number of wine lists in store. They date back to the Austro-Hungarian monarchy - and we even found some documents from "our" company! What you see on the left is the first page of one of the ancient price lists. For more pictures click here.

We are going to visit the archives soon again - hoping for even more interesting findings.
