Gölles Schnapps Distillery & Vinegar Factory

The Gölles family has been managing orchards in and around the sunny hillside country of Riegersburg for four generations. They have specialised in producing fine vinegars and premium spirits since the beginning of the eighties.
Particular attention is paid to using the highest quality products because only the natural taste of perfect sun-ripened fruits or excellent wines is a suitable basis for producing dense, robustly flavoured schnapps or elegant, delicately aromatic vinegars.

The new tour of discovery:Explore on your own and find out how premium spirits and fine vinegars are produced from the best fruit.

Interactively learn more about old varieties of fruit in the orchard, wander around Austria’s largest cellar of vinegar barrels, and put your taste buds to the test during a vinegar tasting as well as at the olfactory stations in the sensory tunnel. Afterwards, learn about the schnapps distillery where the double combustion principle is still used for distillation, before you wind down the day with a tasting of premium brandies. To the collective good. Bottoms up!

 The tour of discovery’s five stations:

  • The orchard theatre
  • Austria’s largest vinegar cellar
  • The sensory tunnel – taste, hear, see, smell and touch
  • The schnapps distillery
  • Tasting of premium spirits and liqueurs at the bar

Tours of discovery start every 15 minutes.
