Leo HILLINGER was born in 1967 in Eisenstadt, Burgenland, into a traditional wine retailer’s family. After studying wine growing in various schools, he completed numerous practical trainings in various European countries. At the age of 19 he was granted a scholarship to move to California in order to engage further in the vinification of quality wines. At that time he also became interested in ecological vineyard management which still characterizes his work.
In 1990, at the age of 23, HILLINGER took over his father’s business and started to reform grape production according to his ideas. After a relatively short period of time he was able to chalk up decisive increases in quality and sales. New experiences gained on his journeys through South Africa, Australia and New Zealand have been continuously incorporated in his work. However, the respect for characteristic wines has always had top priority.
Leo HILLINGER’s methods are marked by a deep respect for the grape, the particularities of the terroir and its climatic conditions. His wines are convincing through their fullness and gentleness which mirror the characteristic nature of the land from which they originate.
