Biodynamic viticulture 

Meinklang’s estate is somewhat larger than our other producers’ – 1,800 hectares in total. However, only 70 hectares are vineyards, the rest comprising farmland, cattle pasture, fields of ancient grains, and apple and pear orchards. Incredibly, the entire estate is Demeter-certified biodynamic and managed and maintained by a staff of just 30 people. 

Our interest in the winery was originally piqued by the wines coming from their 2 hectares of vineyard in the region of Somlo, Hungary, just across the border from Burgenland. Somlo is an inland island, a plateau formed by an extinct volcano rising from an otherwise uniformly flat landscape, and considered to be one of the finest vineyard sites in Hungary.
