HEINRICH, Burgenland – Biodynamic 

Gernot and Heike Heinrich have never been afraid to innovate. After taking over Gernot’s family winery in 1985. They were among the first in the region to produce high-quality reds, seeing the potential in local varietals like Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and St Laurent. Then after converting to biodynanamics they started to explore skin-fermentation with their whites. They have vineyards on the Leithaberg and also on the other side of Lake Neusiedl where the gentle slopes of the Pannonian Plain give a warmer microclimate. They are passionate about biodynamics because they feel it’s right for the planet but also because Gernot believes that the best wines express a sense of place, and that they can only do this if they’re rooted in a biologically diverse environment and the vines live in symbiosis with a healthy ecosystem.
