Our wine prices reflect taxes and fees inflicted on us by the PLCB, which are substantially more damaging than any neighboring state's policies—it's our intention to price everything as affordably as we can within this system. PLCB sucks.

Claus Preisinger was born in 1980 in Eisenstadt. After attending a viticultural high school in Klosterneuburg, he gained experience abroad working in Californian vineyards, and then as a winemaker with Hans & Anita Nittnaus for the next three years. He simultaneously introduced his own first wines in 2002. In 2004 he was accepted into the renowned “Pannobile” association of wineries, and then in 2006 he converted his vineyards to biodynamic winegrowing.

Claus Preisinger has obtained several accolades and top scores from wine publications. He processes grapes from around 40 ha on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl.

Claus has been using ambient yeasts since 2002 as well as little to no sulfites. The preisinger wines are certified biodynamic, which Claus takes very seriously. His commitment to the environment and non-interventional winemaking shines through in the superior wines he produces.

The vineyards for this blend are all situated in Heideboden. This is a plate big vineyard close to the Neusiedlersee. This vineyard ranges over from Wagram to Seewinkel and you find a lot of different kinds of soil, from black earth, gravel to loam.
On the nose intense berries, delicately spicy with a pleasant floral note. Elegant tannins and a fine acid shape on the palate. An excellent accompaniment to meals.
