About the Meinklang Winery
Meinklang is an original, family-run mixed farm in Austria. The farm is set in the middle of the World Heritage Site of the National Park Neusiedlersee. The Park sits on the eastern side of Neusiedlersee Lake, which borders the Hungarian lowlands. This region celebrates life’s diversity and complexity. Meinklang produces wine from both sides of the Austrian/Hungarian border.
About the Meinklang Farm
The Meinklang farm functions much like a living organism. They rely not only on the people but also on the local herd of cows. The cows contribute in an essential way with their natural and invaluable fertilizer. Ancient grains such as spelt, farro, and einkorn wheat enrich the farm’s diversity. The farm is further enhanced by the fruit orchards and vegetable gardens. Similarly, meadows of wild herbs and flowers bring an elegant charm to the grapevines.
About the Meinklang Family
The farm provides a home for a large family. Only one of the three sons expected to remain at home. The other two were to go and build their future on “solid ground” by becoming lawyers or doctors. However, all three children had a stronger desire to pursue farming. Guided by their preferences, each son found their respective fields of expertise. The young men’s parents provided them with the necessary freedom to fulfill their potential. When the parents realized that all their children were serious, they found no risk or effort too great to grow the smallholding into a bigger farm.
Today, each son has the privilege to do the type of work that drew his interest. Werner spent more of his childhood around the winepress than on playgrounds. Hannes, who already as a child had a fascination for tractors. And Lukas always felt drawn towards plants and animals.
