From 23 year old vines planted to 3ha, the grapes are hand-harvested at the beginning of October, de-stemmed and allowed to macerate for 14 days. Spontaneous fermentation lasts for eight weeks with temperature control and spends around 20 weeks on the lees, with stirring once a week.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
In 1881 a late-classical house was constructed here of sandstone from Flonheim. It remains our residence even today. Our family began selling our wines in bottles even before the Second World War. When Walter, today in semi-retirement, took over operations in 1985, he focused squarely on winegrowing. Nicolas assumed responsibility for the cellar and vineyards in 2007 after completing his studies in winegrowing. 2015 saw the sixth generation of the estate take the reins.
