Heinrich Hartl’s Vision? “I want to bring Rotgipfler back to the world stage, it’s a unique treasure found only in the Thermenregion. And I want to produce one of the best Pinot Noirs in Austria. Pinot Noir represents the greatest possible challenge for a red wine maker.” Hartl’s path is distinctive, his wines are unmistakeable.
Marie-Sophie Hartl’s Vision: “I believe in the future of winemaking in Austria and the Thermenregion. There’s still enormous potential here. We’re only just getting started at our winery. The white wine sites in our region are fascinating and Rotgipfler is a varietal that flourishes here. It will have an exciting future, well beyond our borders. You’ll hear a lot more from us!”
Fresh and cool aromatics characterise the winery’s white wines. Alongside their beloved Rotgipfler, Heinrich and Marie-Sophie are dedicated to making Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Muskateller – because of their desire to produce niche wines and because of their fascination with these varietals.
The red wines are full-bodied and elegant in equal measure. Pinot Noir and St. Laurent are the leading varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zweigelt are produced as reserve wines; and the regional varieties Blauburger and Blauer Portugieser are made as easy-drinking red wines to be enjoyed in their youth.
