Open Bottle Wednesday!

Hillinger Small Hill
Jois, Burgenland, Austria

Leo has an interesting and a unusual blend here: 50% Merlot plus equal parts
Pinot Noir and St. Laurent.

Merlot and Pinot Noir do very well in Burgenland.

Leo Hillinger created this blend to make an easy, soft, drinkable, red with dark fruit.
A light oak barrel touch and eloquent tannins, this red speaks of drinkability with texture and friendly flavors into the finish.
Yes, Austria is a white wine country but there are great red wines produced as well. Leo Hillinger produces Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch which are the most well known red Austrian grapes in Austria.


 "Intensive ruby-red color with purple rim, in the nose hints of dark berries and chocolate. On the palate a full bodied, balanced and harmonic impression with lots of dark berry fruit ending in a smooth and moderate finish. This wine is ideally suited to complement dishes. food paring: almost everything, a red wine for every day

But you're the beneficiary!
Soft, smooth, adaptable. All the right flavors at just the right time!

A history of a self-made vintner and an Ambassador for doing everything the right way...….

Leo Hillinger born 1967 in Eisenstadt in Burgenland.
Already during his childhood he showed deep interest in viticulture and vinification. During his professional wine eduction and several practica abroad he deepened his knowledge and learned the secrets about making great wine showing sense of place.
At an age of 19, Leo Hillinger went to California and learned the basics about organic treatment in the vineyards and cellar.
This built the fundamental knowledge for todays success being 100% organic on more than 90 ha of vineyards.

• The most important issue is the origin of the grapes
• Limits of yields are far below the official regulation
• Reduced spraying, only on a as needed basis
• Only organic treatments to fight against pests and diseases
• Support of beneficial parasites

• No use of enzymes
• Use of sulphur as low as possible
• Temperature controlled fermentation
• Natural Yeasts when ever possible
