ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Johanneshof Reinisch Zweigelt comes from the Austrian region of Thermen regin. There, 2,181 hectares of vines come right up to the hillsides of the Vienna Woods. The region runs from the city limits of Vienna along a chain of hills with Mount Anninger as the highest point until arriving south of Baden. White wine remains the focus even today in the northern part around Gumpoldskirchen, with special attention paid to the autochthonous varieties Zierfandler (also known as Spätrot) and Rotgipfler, while in the south red wine dominates with the varieties Sankt Laurent and Pinot Noir.
In the Thermenregion south of Vienna lies Johanneshof Reinisch. The vineyards contain 65% red and 35% white vines. Fourth generation winemakers, the Reinisch family works hard to balance tradition and modernity. They make sure the vineyards grow in excellent soil while at the same time using the most advanced technology of our time to produce high qulaity wine. Johanneshof Reinisch focuses on Burgundian varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and St. Laurent. In Gumpoldskirchen, they focus on indigenous grape varieties Rotgipfler and Zierfandler.
