Eisenberg is tiny wine village in Austria’s Burgenland adjacent to and named for a high hill dominated by iron-rich schist. Eisenberg in fact translates as "Iron Mountain". The Krutzler family were wine pioneers in this region, bottling the first of their wines some 40 years ago. Given the difficult terrain, core their distinct taste profiles, the Eisenberg DAC is dominated by small, artisinal wineries emphasizing quality over volume.

Winegrowing has a long tradition in this part of Austria, but it was only after phyloxerra devastated the historical vineyards that the Blaufränkisch became domesticated in this area. The climate and soils on the Eisenberg perfectly match this grape variety, producing fully ripe and aromatic berries.
