Wine experiences at the HILL

In 2004, Leo HILLINGER fulfilled his dream of owning a modern wine estate. The place for this was not chosen at random. From here, one can see everything that makes his wines unique: the Leithagebirge, Neusiedler See and the distant plain in which the lake seems to disappear. In the winery, wine is not only vinified. The wine is also lived here – in the cellar that was built into the hillside, and in the rooms above it. Leo HILLINGER and his team are happy to provide insights into this world of wine. With guided tours, tastings or excursions to the vineyards. On and around the HILL everything revolves around the wine: joie de vivre, the pleasurable and the particular.
Step into the HILLINGER winery and experience more than wine.
