From the outside, you might think you're looking at a manor house, but this is where Birgit Eichinger and her daughter Gloria work, a "women's power house" rather, in which the two women set the tone.
Birgit Eichinger - Well-known winemaking duo from the Kamptal region
Behind the wine is the man who created it with nature: Birgit Eichinger's philosophy is one that is characterized by great care, consistency as well as flair. At the same time, it is deeply rooted in her homeland, the Kamptal. She is the epitome of wines with strength of character and the highest elegance. "Further development, not stagnation, individuality instead of mainstream" is her credo. What Birgit Eichinger has written on the flags is also reflected in the signature of the winemakers and that of their birthplace, the Kamptal.
Growth and reclamation at the Birgit Eichinger Winery
Since its foundation in 1992, the winery has grown to 16 hectares today - and that in the best Kamptal vineyards. This made possible the reactivation of the terraces on the Gaisberg. This ambitious project covers more than three hectares of the best vineyards. Already in 2012 was planted out there from own selections Grüner Veltliner. New to the program of her renowned sites is the Ried Grub, which has also been planted with Grüner Veltliner since 2016.
Birgit Eichinger is represented on every wine list
More than half of the total production is exported, helping Birgit Eichinger win numerous international awards. In her native Austria, Eichiner wines are equally popular and it is hard to imagine a wine list without them. As a member of the "Traditionsweingüter Österreich" (Traditional Wine Estates of Austria), the winegrowing duo is naturally also very concerned about the classification of the prime sites in the Danube region. Because just because a vine grows somewhere, you can not assume that the quality is the same. The Eichinger family is committed to this quest. But the Eichingers are also involved in the well-known association "11 Women and their Wines", where they have started to consolidate the status of women winemakers.
And these are Birgit Eichinger's grape varieties:
