MO: the unchained path….less is more and timing is everything
Martin Obenaus from Glaubendorf (“Locus Fidei”) in Weinviertel is a young passionate biodynamic winegrower. He loves working his vineyards and with the creatures around them. “Unchained” is his credo in all aspects. Farmed biodynamically, his vineyards shall once again turn into an ecosystem in which interventions become less and less necessary. Martin protects, supports, lets nature take its course, he unchains it. Hunting shapes the environment in a similar way as winegrowing. It might seem unusual to strive for a development in which the hunter becomes dispensable and the nature is unchained. But so was the return to winegrowing the way our ancestors used to do it – the low intervention way. Martin has taken this path which will be a never-ending one. The ecosystem changes every year but so do we.
