Company information

The right bank of the Danube may not be as well-known as its counterpart on the left, but this is precisely what grants some of the vineyards located on that side the status of insider’s tips. Heinz Frischengruber’s winery is one of them. Gradually, Heinz is passing on the reigns to his widely travelled son Georg, who also inherits a range of excellent wines that one should sample from A to Z. Heinz still occasionally accompanies his son to the terraces – Zanzl, Steiger, Kirnberg and Goldberg – where the two of them work meticulously on the specificities of the different terroirs. Old Riesling vines are particularly well placed in the prehistoric soil of the Goldberg, while the Steiger vineyard calls for dense and complex Veltliner. They work in harmony with nature, paying particular attention to physiological maturity and late harvesting.   Georg works in an equally thoughtful manner in the cellar. Most of his wines are fermented spontaneously and subsequently rest for months on the lees. The single vineyard wines stay in their tanks until late summer and thus acquire additional nuances and elegance. The family’s Heurigen is open three times a year, allowing guests to combine Veltliner and Riesling with culinary classics from the region. Those who wish to extend their stay can rent the family’s holiday apartment.
