Hans-Jörg Unterrainer

Kirchenwirt Leogang’s critically-acclaimed wine selection is in the hands of owner and sommelier Hans-Jörg Unterrainer. The list mainly revolves around top wines that are non-mainstream. The two-floor wine cellar stores only the best wines: from Austrian labels and rare vintages to mind-blowing Sakes. Of course, you can also enjoy exciting alcohol-free beverages, including a special homemade drink made from pear syrup.
