A brief 30-minute drive south of Vienna will bring you to the door of Johanneshof Reinisch. Located in Austria’s historic Thermenregion, the Reinisch family is producing wine in the fourth generation, with the current winemaking team comprised of three brothers: Hannes, Christian and Michael. With a 2,000 year legacy of wine growing in the region, the Reinisch’s maintain Thermenregion traditions with vineyards planted to 65 % red and 35 % white vines. The Theremregion aquired this name, in part, from geothermal hot springs that flow under the vineyards here, contributing to favorable wine growing conditions for finicky varieties like Pinot Noir.

Best known for their excellent Pinot Noir and St. Laurent, there is a particular focus at Johanneshof Reinisch on the Burgundy varieties. Their Pinot Noir vines grow in vineyards from both the stony, alluvial gravel soils of Tattnedorf near the winery and the elevated, nutrient rich soils of Gumpoldskirchen.
The grapes for this wine come from our vineyards on Anninger mountain in Gumpoldskirchen.
70% fermented in stainless steel and 30% in old large barrels.
Animating scent of exotic fruits. Lively and vital with a firm core on the palate. Creamy finish.
The grapes for this Pinot Noir come from the vineyards around Tattendorf and Gumpoldskirchen, where soils with a large proportion of lime offer the ideal location for Burgundy vines.
When vinifying this Pinot Noir, we strive for a lean, fruity character of the wine, which is why it only matures in large wooden casks.
Fine scent of berries and fruits. Elegant with a hint of extract sweetness.
