The winery J. Heinrich is located in Deutschkreutz, in the heart of Burgenland. The winery is run by Silvia Heinrich. Blaufränkisch, which she vinifies with great sensitivity, is Silvia’s passion. Their top-class wines inspire fans and the wine world.
In 2009, Silvia took over the winery from her parents and decided to focus completely on red wine. Approximately 80 percent of the vineyards are planted with Blaufränkisch, the region’s native variety, with both individuality and great potential. Silvia produces seven styles from selected single vineyard sites, that range from from elegant and mineral-like to the rich and intensive.
The remaining twenty percent is planted with international classic varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, as well as Zweigelt vines. Our treasured and personal favourite is an old block of Pinot Noir, that my grandparents once cultivated.
Silvia’s motto is “less is more”. A handful of grape varieties, environmentally conscious cultivation, hand- picked grapes, wild yeast fermentation. These are the main ingredients from which she produces wines of uncompromising quality in the bottle. Quality that is acknowledged.
The premium wines terra o., elegy and Cupido regularly wine international trophies. Terra o. is a blend of Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah is highly regarded for its depth and spice, coupled with pronounced fruit characters. The flagship “Cupido” wine is a single-varietal Blaufränkisch, which displays dark fruit characters, smoky spice notes, elegant minerality and supple, silky tannins. International wine critics and experts are always impressed by her wines.
