Claus Preisinger’s story starts 20 years ago at the tender age of 20 with a few tanks and barrels. The newly trained winemaker had just started working for Hans Nittnaus - back then, and still today, one of the pioneers of early organic winemaking in the region. What always stayed was his immense talent to reflect purity and balance in his wines. Around 2006/2007, alongside like-minded growers in the village, he switched to biodynamics and this, in his own words, 'changed everything‘. Today Claus farms around 20 hectares around the North stretch of Lake Neusiedlersee in the villages of Purbach, Weiden, Gols and Mönchhof. As impressive as his track record has been since the start, his wines truly advanced around 10 years ago with his early-stage experimentation in the cellar (Claus was one of the first to use Georgian Qvevris and then continued to experiment with vessels from Spain, Italy and even China). His hands-off approach in the winemaking was combined with a naturally occurring earlier harvest and a search for freshness rarely seen in the area before.
A special high-density planted vineyard on the North shores of Lake Neusiedlersee which in contrast to most Blaufränkisch vineyards has a fairly slow and low plant reminding Claus of small 'Bonsai' trees. The vineyard is sitting on a foundation of limestone with a mix of sandy clay and gravel on the top layers of the vineyard.
