"The Michlits family believes in a well-balanced, individual entity comes from the surrounding environment with its individual fauna and flora.”
The soils in Burgenland are constituted of a contrast between the chalk-based, steep slopes of the Leithaberg and the salty lakes and sandy soils on the more easterly Seewinkel. One can also find a different soil composition in Eisenberg in southern Burgenland, like unique layers of basalt in the Styrian town of Klöch, or limestone and clay in the Südsteiermark. This diversity of soils and microclimates allow the production of both, red and white wines.
History / Ethos
Meinklang is a family business with a vineyard as biotope located in Parmhagen in Burgenland, at the Hungarian border. Here vineyards are surrounded by natural ponds, animals, and wild herbs such as meliot, vetch, red clover and wild grasses offer a domicile for beneficial insects and soil organisms. Three generations of the family is now living and working on the estate. They all believe that robust and healthy vines can only thrive in living soils to produce unique wines of character.
