Our aim is to tease out the particular features of the vineyard sites and qualities, and not to standardise them. Each vintage is unique, unrepeatable. All our wines are originals and typical of the Middle Rhine – with lively acidity and marked minerality. They require some time to mature and are particularly suitable for longer storage.
From grapes to wine
The basis of all our wines is selective harvesting, by hand, careful transportation of the grapes and great care in their handling. As a rule, the musts begin to ferment spontaneously, but we have no problem with additionally using neutral fermentation yeast. Slow fermentation in our cool cross-vault cellar and extended storage on the yeast support the marked minerality of the Riesling. We do not think much of transient "tropical fruit fermentation" aromas. We prefer storage in the old taste-neutral wooden cask to the stainless steel tank. Our wines are bottled in late spring, after a sparing use of sulphur, with no clarification aids and only one filtration. All our wines fulfil the demands of a vegan diet.
