Pairing Ideas

Why Natural Wine?

  • Thanks to low-intervention growing and processing techniques, these wines beautifully express the landscapes in which they’re grown—so each sip conveys the taste, aroma, and spirit of some of the best places on earth
  • Grapes are grown with regenerative practices that restore rather than deplete local ecosystems
    • No herbicides or pesticides: On some farms, sheep graze down the weeds; on others, waterfowl handle pest control and provide fertilizer
    • Native plants grow between rows to prevent erosion, draw down carbon and improve soil health
  • Fermentation, aging and bottling:
    • No filtration
    • Minimal or no added sulfites
    • No animal-based clarifying agents; our wine is vegan
    • Naturally occurring, indigenous yeasts—rather than lab-grown varieties—drive fermentation
  • Flavors are wild, intense, unconventional

About the Producer

The Vineyard

  • Meinklang spans Austria and Hungary’s fertile lowlands
  • One of the world’s largest Demeter-certified biodynamic farms, with almost 200 acres of established vines
  • Wild flora—especially clover, vetch, native grasses and nettles—thrive among the rows, loosening the soil and stimulating the vines; they also provide pollinator habitat and boost the development of aromas and phenols in the fruit
  • Grapevines are fed by a homemade compost of livestock dung, pomace, green waste and rock powder
  • The vines grow naturally with limited pruning, delivering grapes with a high skin-to-pulp ratio and complex flavor profiles

The Winemakers

  • Anneliese and Werner Michlits, Meinklang’s founders, work side by side with their three adult sons
  • The family is helping their land recover its ancient productivity and native biodiversity by using only regenerative, water-friendly growing practices
  • Their biodynamic wines are unfiltered and bottled with minimal sulfites
