Georg Preisinger, Blaufrankisch, Heideboden, 2012, Burgenland, Austria

Producer Profile

Viticulture has been the focus of the Preisinger family for five generations. What began in 1851 as mixed farming with animal husbandry has developed over generations into today’s winery.

5th Generation Georg Preisinger,  put it quite simply in and of itself: “You can taste the origin of good wine. The love for it, too.”

The rocket is a carefully chosen symbol for their wines. It stands for the journey through time that becomes possible through the enjoyment of strong-charactered wines: The immersion into a past year, the taste structure of the past handed down through time to the present. Sun, coolness, rain, dryness. But also, the overcoming of distances – which good wine masters so well. By the way, you can experience a journey through time of the special kind on board our top wines: with up to 47-year-old vines that encompass some of the oldest vegetative memories of the vineyards of Gols.


100% Blaufrankisch, sourced from vineyards planted in 1982 on permeable black earth gravel soil, sandy loam but lime free. Hand-picked in small boxes, pre-selection in the vineyard and then again once it reaches the winery.


Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks and spontaneous malolactic fermentation in used barriques.
