Here in the Thermenregion south of Vienna lies Johanneshof Reinisch. Vineyards are planted with 65 % red and 35 % white vines. There is a strong link between tradition and modernity, with vineyards growing on excellent soil, the most advanced technology of our time, and the experience of generations that have always had high ambitions for the present and the future. There is a particular focus at Johanneshof Reinisch on the Burgundy varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and St. Laurent. In the area of Gumpoldskirchen the indigenous grape varieties Rotgipfler and Zierfandler are cultivated. The Reinisch family is producing wine in the fourth generation.
Created by Dr. Fritz Zweigelt at the famous Klosterneuberg enology school in 1922, the eponymously named variety is a crossing of Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent. Since its introduction it has come to be the most widely planted red grape variety in Austria with close to 6,500 hectares under vine. In Austria, the wine made from this grape is either loved or loathed for its often times simple, young drinking iterations.
