Claus started his 22ha farm in 2000 and has applied biodynamic principles since the beginning. In 2004 he was one of the founding members of the Pannobile group of wine makers. His vineyard
work is meticulous and he is deeply in touch with his land. He uses
a mixture of techniques including homeopathic tea’s, humus from compost of cattle and horses strictly from Steiner philosophies.
The eponymously named Puszta, which translates to “plains” in Hungarian, harkens back to a time when the source vineyard sites were once part of Hungary. Libre, of course, is Spanish for “free.”
No added sulpher.
