Juicy and uncomplicated, prose stands for liquid life affirmation and carefree drinking fun without losing seriousness.
Animated by pronounced lightberry fruit and fine-crowned spice, Prosa's teasing perlage tickles itself with a wink over the palate and celebrates the lightness of being invigoratingly fresh.

Meinklang is an original, family-run mixed farm, set in the middle of the World Heritage Site of the National Park Neusiedlersee, on the Eastern side of the Neusiedlersee Lake, bordering directly on the Hungarian lowlands, where life’s diversity and complexity are celebrated.
This farm functions much like an organism, relying not only on the people but also on the local herd of cows which contributes in an essential way with their natural and invaluable fertiliser.
The vineyard as a biotope. In the vineyards, among protected natural ponds, precious cover crops and wild herbs grow around our vines: sweet-clover, vetches, red clover and wild grasses provide a habitat for soil organisms and beneficial organisms. The deep roots loosen the ground, forming the basis for healthy vines. At the same time, cover crops act as a natural competitor for the vines – gentle and deliberate competition is good for the development of aromas and phenols in the grapes.
We fertilise our vineyards with the compost we produce ourselves on the farm, using sheep, cow and horse manure, pomace, green waste and occasionally also rock dust.
Robust and healthy vines can only grow in soil which is alive, producing completely individual wines full of character.
Biodynamics is a matter of the heart. It is above all an intensive interaction with everything that surrounds us. From nature we create power; it forms, moulds and nourishes us. By observing and examining nature we can find many answers which often lie deeply hidden away and require us to be in harmony with our farm.
Already at the beginning of the 20th century some farmers were recognising the fact that the new farming practices with its artificial fertilisers and cross-breeding burdened fruitful development and even rendered it impossible. They asked the anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner about his thoughts on this topic, and so it happened that Steiner held a total of eight lectures in Koberwitz bei Breslau in 1924, setting down the founding ideas of organic agriculture. What followed was the founding of the Demeter organisation and the Demeter Institute for Biodynamic Research, which, together with research, a quest for new findings and continuous advances, carried these ideas through to today.
The focus is the running of farms, which, with their individual fauna and flora, form part of the environment. The ultimate goal of biodynamic Demeter work is the development of a living farm organism which encompasses livestock breeding, the farm’s own seeds and feed, as well as its own natural composted fertiliser. The ultimate objective is that the farm develops into a well-balanced, individual entity.
