Wine maker notes
Pinot Noir has been grown in Austria for close to two hundred years and is the most successful red grape import from France. Great Austrian Pinot Noir only began to emerge in the last decade with growers like Gernot Heinrich planting the temperamental varietal in top sites. Dorflagen is a young vine Pinot Noir from the gravelly Goldberg vineyard and the loamy Salzberg vineyard, both in close proximity to the Heinrich winery in Gols. Pretty, perfumed and affordable.

Food pairing
Pair with fall vegetable lasagna, sesame chicken, or roasted pork belly with rhubarb compote.

Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with 2 ½ acres of vineyard purchased from Gernot”s family. His early work in the family winery, like most of that generation, was purely an agricultural pursuit with goals more related to quantity production. Gernot”s parents had wished their son would choose a different path, because unlike him, they could not see the potential for great wines to be produced from this area. Just over a decade later, the Heinrich”s were recognized with the prestigious Falstaff ”Winemaker of the Year” award. The philosophy at the winery is as transparent and pure as their wines. Their initial challenges were no comparison to the joy and some measure of freedom it gave Gernot & Heike to make a fresh start for the area. That joy and bravery still drives them both today, as they look across Lake Neusiedl to Leithaberg for their next challenge.
