Well-known winemaker duo from the Kamptal
From the outside you might think you are looking at a manor house, but this is the place where Birgit Eichinger and her daughter Gloria worked, a "women's powerhouse", in other words, a place where the two women set the tone. Behind the wine is the man who created it with nature: Birgit Eichinger's philosophy is one of great care, consistency and intuition. At the same time it is deeply rooted in her homeland, the Kamptal. She is the epitome of wines with strength of character and highest elegance. "Further development, not stagnation, individuality instead of mainstream" is her credo. What Birgit Eichinger has set out to achieve is also reflected in the handwriting of the winemakers and that of her birthplace, the Kamptal.
Growth and recultivation
Since its foundation in 1992, the farm has grown to its present 16 hectares - and this in the best Kamptal vineyards. This has made it possible to reactivate the terraces on the Gaisberg. This ambitious project covers more than three hectares of the best vineyard land. Already in 2012, Grüner Veltliner was planted there from own selections. A new addition to the range of its renowned sites is the Grub reed, which has also been planted with Grüner Veltliner since 2016.
Present on every wine list
More than half of the total production is exported and helped Birgit Eichinger to win numerous international awards. In her home country Austria, Eichiner wines are equally popular and hardly any wine list can be imagined without them. As a member of the "Traditionsweingüter Österreich", the winemaker duo is of course also very concerned about the classification of the first sites in the Danube region. Because just because a vine grows somewhere, one cannot assume that the quality is the same. Eichinger feels committed to this search. But the Eichingers are also involved in the well-known association "11 women and their wines", where they have joined in order to strengthen the status of the women winemakers.
