corner house bondi – Banquet with the Wine Maker: Claus Preisinger

Join The Corner House Bondi ( A local Bondi favourite of mine) and Austrian biodynamic enologist, Claus Preisinger for a 4 course banquet style dinner showcasing top wines from Burgenland, Austria.
With the support from one of Australia’s leading and avant-garde importers, Lo-Fi Wine’s Mr. James Audas & Mr. Tom Sheer, we welcome Claus to delve deeper into what is some truly compelling fermented grape juice!
“ Theory is not my way. Doing is what counts.” – Claus Preisinger
If you want to produce delicious Austrian red wine, you gotta have Gols. Vineyards located in and around the town of Gols are making a name for producing world class wines from Zweigelt, Blaufrankish, St. Laurent and, in the case of Preisinger, Pinot Noir. Taught to farm by his father, Lorenz, Claus adheres to more traditional techniques, incorporating hand tractors and hand harvesting in his work. Claus is a biodynamic farmer and describes himself as a “low-tech, instinctive, natural” kind of winemaker who “takes whatever the grapes bring and puts it right into the bottle.” His wines show a crystal clear sense of place, intensity of fruit, and authenticity that only evolves from great farming.

Its sure to be a great evening!

bondi wash dog wash

I love supporting local and working with brands big and small.

Bondi Wash is one such brand, they only launched 18 months ago, just like me they are based in Bondi in fact we are neighbours. I was booked by an agency when they were about to launch to help style their first campaign and help them create their very own look, it eems they haven’t looked back! Im so proud of what they have achieved it’s testament to hard work and a good idea ( oh and awesome products) and  I genuinely love their products and yes even Sophia our Boston Terrier gets to enjoy their awesome natural products with their range for dogs!
