STANDSTILL MEANS REGRESSION
The Hans Igler winery has been an Austrian family business for over 50 years. As an interface between tradition and modernity, it is already managed in the third generation by son Clemens Reisner and Anna Reisner-Iorillo. The focus remains on creating new worlds of taste in close connection with nature.
The grandson of Hans Igler has been running the winery in the 3rd generation together with his wife Anna since January 2021. With the first edition of the special edition Blaufränkisch "C1", he already played a major role in shaping the wine cellar during his apprenticeship in 2004. Since then, Clemens' international experience, gained in various wineries in Australia and France, has been steadily flowing into the wines. As the cellar master in charge, he is not only dedicated to the perfection of varietal wines, but above all specializes in cuveeing. This is a particularly exciting theme, as the best of all the grape varieties is brought out to combine them into something new. The goal is always to create wines that inspire him as a winemaker himself.
TRADITION & MODERNITY
Active in the business since 2012, Anna has been managing director of the winery at Clemens' side since 2021. Due to her English language studies for international business & business communication, which she completed in England, she is now responsible for sales, marketing and communication in a leading position. Furthermore she is responsible for the Schaflerhof as an event location: no matter if it is a company party, a wedding, a birthday or even a joint cooperation, professionalism, an intensive care and attention to detail are the order of the day.
MANAGING DIRECTOR FROM 1994-2021
In 1994 Waltraud took over the management of the winery from her father Hans Igler, the namesake and founder. As managing director, she was primarily responsible for the national and international distribution of the wines. In January 2021, after more than 25 successful years, she handed over the operational business to the next generation.
SOLE PRODUCTION MANAGER UNTIL 2003
Until 2003 Wolfgang managed the production in the cellar alone and contributed significantly to the high quality of the wines. He taught Clemens the craft from the ground up, eventually sharing cellar responsibility with him until 2021. Wolfgang was always at Waltraud's side and involved in all decisions and processes of the winery.
