Sven Leiner produces wines that are more than organic. He firmly believes that biodynamic cultivation is an essential preliminary to authentic regional taste, to wines with charisma, with character and soul, to terroir at its best, to an authentic wine experience – and the purpose of his daily work. Young and driven, he leads the way for a new generation of winemakers: more than organic, away from ideologies to credible, authentic and natural quality, practising sustainability from vine to bottle, determined to express true character, and deliberately resisting the typical ‘fast’ approach through primary fruit populism. Sven Leiner’s uncompromisingly crafted and perfected wines express a purity and authenticity that lends them an inner vibrancy and allows each vintage to develop its own distinct character. You must be willing to engage with his wines, come to understand them on the palate, because they are stylistically ‘different’, purer, bolder, more naked than other wines in his region. Sven Leiner is a talented vintner with daring and skill that we can only applaud.
