Franz Weninger

FRANZ WENINGER, Mittelburgenland

Viticulture is sensitive and dedicated to promoting healthy soil structure. Franz Weninger works towards encouraging the most natural and healthy soils for his vines to retain its natural plants and fauna, only mowing one of two times a year. He comes from a long line of growers and strives for the most organic practices where possible.  Every second row in the vineyard is cut to allow enough space for an uninterrupted natural environment for indigenous insects and animals. Under the vines themselves the grass is cut simply with a scythe. The use of tractors is minimised to ensure that the soil is not compacted. All forms of life are encouraged from the smallest cell to highly developed plants and animals.
