"My wine- these are the grapes and this is me when I'm feeling good: True, there are many excellent wines around- but none of them are role models for me. Because I want to make my wine, and if it becomes great, then it suits me just fine.
I take whatever the grapes bring, and then I try to put that right into the bottle - pure, low-tech, instinctive, completely natural - just how I am. With a lot of consideration, but without being too heavy in the head. Feeling, instinct, nose, mouth and stomach - they all decide. It is so easy, yet it is also complicated. Just how I am :-)" -Claus Preisinger

"The world is beautiful. I look at it often- from wherever I want. But here is the most beautiful place. Because, somehow, only home is truly home. The landscape, the people, my vineyards - this is where I came from - and here is where I'll stay.
Where I work is the most beautiful place in the world (even others spend their holidays here!). I don't have to go to an office, there are no traffic jams on the way to work, I can be in the fresh air as much as I want (and as much as the vines require); I can look at the landscape and feel the weather. This is a privilege- one that I appreciate more and more. And those who don't believe it should come and have a look for themselves."
Claus made a visit to California recently and had this to say: California was a very easy-going experience. Great country, fine climate, terrific wines. But it also means wine industry and marketing mania. This I know for sure: I don't want to do it that way!! Better when small, fine, indigenous, un-globalized and un-consulted - and above all- completely personal.
We are guessing this is also why he chose to import with us- our goals are the same, and his wines prove this out.
The west side of the lake... The Austrian wine establishment has now begun to call this region Leithaberg, after the local hillsides themselves, although it is hard to imagine winegrowing in this region without the benificent influence of the lake. The free city of Rust has been famous for its sweet wines for centuries, now producing memorable reds and dry whites as well. The towns of St Margarethen, Donnerskirchen and Grosshöflein are all proving to be sources of excellent grapes from the varieties Blaufränkisch and St Laurent, as well as for the more surprising Sauvignon Blanc. The major municipality Eisenstadt is the capital of Burgenland; the area has been settled since the early Iron Age, and evidence of viticulture exists in Celtic hill burials from nearly three thousand years ago.
