Wine maker notes
Smaragd is the Wachau designation for dry late harvest wines, above 12.5% alcohol through natural fermentation. The best smaragd wines can age well for decades. Wachtum Bodenstein ”the Bodenstein cru” is an experimental vineyard planted with 15 clones of Riesling.

In 1983, the now retired Franz Prager, cofounded the Vinea Wachau association, an organization dedicated to preserving the quality and culture of Wachau wines, while promoting Wachau”s image beyond Austrian borders. The marriage of Vienna-born Toni Bodenstein, to Franz”s daughter, Ilse, ushered in a sweeping renaissance at the Prager winery. These changes not only affected the way Prager thought, but also how Wachauers thought about their vineyards and their work as winemakers.
