The Michlits Family operates one of the world's largest biodynamic farms in the Neusiedler See-Seewinkel National Park. The Meinklang farm is a wide and varied Demeter-certified agricultural operation cultivating a number of different crops as well as raising 300 Angus cattle. The estate represents what used to be common practice everywhere in the Pannonian countryside: a mixed farming operation, managed by extended family. The wine estate is well-integrated into the farm and led by Angela and Werner Michlits. Their grüner veltliner comes from 15-year-old vines growing in sandy loam and rocky topsoil. After hand-harvesting, the grapes ferment spontaneously via carbonic maceration over two weeks. Nine months’ aging takes place in concrete eggs, after which the wine is bottled without fining or filtration and with a low addition of SO2. Herbaceous with a hint of smoke, it presents a beautiful texture on the palate and a savory finish. Certified biodynamic, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
