Description

Built in 1874, the wine press house adorns Öhling's village square to this day. Gently and with a keen awareness of the valuable structure of the building, Perry Baron couple Doris and Josef Farthofer renovated the heritage-protected cellar house in 2010 and repurposed it into a production and tasting building.

Interested visitors can enjoy regular guided tours and tastings here. The building's eponym is the perry dessert wine "Mostello" which is a protected creation that the Farthofers made from autochthonous pear varieties and their own organic perry brandy.

In the shop you can not only purchase "Mostello" but also all other organic brandies and liquors from the distillery as well as regional delicacies. Since autumn 2018, the distillery also has malthouse for distilling its own new whiskies. By the way: Doris and Josef Farthofer gained considerable recognition at the end of 2012 by winning the IWSC gold medal and the prestigious IWSC trophy for their organic premium vodka O•Vodka as world's best vodka (International Wine & Spirit Competition in London), and additionally: 1st place in the Mixology Gin Test Award for their O•Gin.
