Alois Gölles: Vinegar & Spirit Perfectionist Riegersburg, Südoststeiermark, Styria.

When apples become balms and fruits are presented in their most aromatic liquid forms, only one name comes to mind:

Alois Gölles, the master of high-quality distillates and precious vinegars from Southeastern Styria.

For four generations, his family has been cultivating orchards on the sunny countryside hills around Austria’s Riegersburg Castle. Even though his name is mostly associated with brandies, also vinegars have become increasingly important for the Alois Gölles estate.
