The winery is located in the municipality of Deutschkreutz in the Austrian wine-growing region of Mittelburgenland. The red wine pioneer Hans Igler (+1994) was considered a grand seigneur, doyen and charismatic leading figure of many Burgenland winemakers. He was the first Burgenland winemaker to experiment with barrique ageing, which was still unknown in Austria at that time, as early as the beginning of the 1980s, and was one of the first to use Cabernet Sauvignon and dare to make a red wine cuvée. Together with the painter Anton Lehmden, he created Austria's first artistically designed label series. The winery was then continued by Waltraud Reisner-lgler and Wolfgang Reisner. After training at the Eisenstadt School of Viticulture and internships at the Veritas winery (Barossa Valley, Australia) and at the Graf Neipperg wineries (St. Émilion, Bordeaux), Clemens Reisner had already been solely responsible for the cellar since 2010. From January 2021, he took over the management together with his wife Anna, after Waltraud Reisner-Igler went into well-deserved retirement after 25 years.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
