Gernot and Heike Heinrich, the dynamic duo behind Weingut Heinrich in Burgenland, established their winery in 1990 starting with just one hectare. Over the years, they have expanded their vineyard to 90 hectares, making a significant transition from simple white wines to high-quality reds in the early 1990s. They became well-known for their powerful red blends like Salzberg, Gabarinza, and Pannobile. In recent years, their focus has shifted towards Blaufränkisch from the nearby Leithaberg DAC, and to “Freyheit,” a line of wines produced with minimal intervention in the cellar. The Heinrichs converted to biodynamic farming in 2006 and are members of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria, reflecting their commitment to organic and biodynamic cultivation and the biodiversity of their vineyards.

Utilizing stainless steel tanks, oak vats, and sandstone amphorae, they craft distinctly pure and elegant wines. The Leithaberg district's limestone and crystalline soils contribute to the wines' elegance, while the warmer Gols area produces richer reds like Ried Gabarinza and Ried Salzberg.
