The Michlits Family operates one of the world's largest biodynamic farms in the Neusiedler See-Seewinkel National Park on the Austrian-Hungarian border. 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. Situated on the eastern side of Lake Neusiedlersee, it borders the Hungarian lowlands, and this new white is a delicious showcase of the unique volcanic terroir of Somló. It features two old indigenous Hungarian grape varietals, harslevelü and juhfark, grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soils of Somló mountain near Lake Balaton. Each grape is harvested from a single vineyard, and the different expressions are combined into a singular taste of the Somló: aromatic and mineral, with the zippy freshness of pineapple. Certified biodynamic, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
