|Since the early 1990s, Franz Prager`s estate has been run by his son-in-law, Toni Bodenstein. One of the Wachau`s viticultural pioneers, Toni is dedicated to producing wines that express their terroir. |
The Weingut is based in the village of Weisssenkirchen, nestled at the foot of the towering terraces that overlook the Danube.
The area is blessed with a perfect microclimate: days are warm while night temperatures are cooled by refreshing, oxygen-rich northern breezes and regulated generally by the river itself.
The village`s two most imposing sites (or Rieden), Achleiten and Klaus, face due south and are the only two vineyards in the valley to slope right down to the water`s edge.
The primary rock structure of Klaus is black slate (Amphibolit). Its wines are peachy, floral and mineral, and tend to need a couple of years before they begin to show their true colours. Achleiten`s primary rock contains gneiss as well as slate and the wines are beautifully fruity and spicy with earthy tones. The wines tend to open out earlier.
