WEINGUT EICHINGER

Birgit Eichinger’s goals are clear – to optimise the natural aroma and flavour potential inherent in the grapes by matching varietals and terrain, practicing careful vineyard management and applying painstaking vinification. Having begun her winemaking career experimenting with 3.5 hectares from her parents’ business in the Kamptal region of Austria, it didn’t take long for Birgit to build on this success and establish a winery of her own in 1992. Standing at the foot of the Gaisberg mountain, the winery is ultramodern and vinification takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with the emphasis being placed on the purity of...

TASTING NOTES

Thanks to the diversity of this site’s soil, with its ruddy weathered desert sandstone combining with volcanic compounds, the Heiligenstein produces a classically pure expression of Riesling.

With every vintage, Birgit never fails to astound us with the exceptional quality of her wines. Highly expressive, elegant and with wonderful purity, we have had the pleasure of marvelling at these stunning wines for the last eight years that we have been working with Weingut Eichinger.

Birgit established a winery of her own situated on a superb spot at the foot of the Gaisberg Mountain in 1992 having spent time experimenting on 3.5 hectares of her parents’ land in the Kamptal. Her reputation as a talented viticulturalist and oenologist has continued to grow, and she has become mentor and friend to many up-andcoming female winemakers who still take their lead from her. Vital to her work is maintaining the purity of the must prior to fermentation, while slightly warmer fermentations add texture to the body of the wine which complements her painstaking work in the 9 hectares of vineyards in some of the best traditional sites in Strasse.
