The top red wines, however, are in for at least 18 months Barrique -Fässern. These are partly made up Oak wood manufactured, which comes from the forest of the Deutschkreutzer district Girm. The barrique barrels are selected several times a day with selected and relaxing music (e.g. from the locally known violinist Toni Stricker) for the effect of special "vibrations". The flagship of the house is the extremely durable red wine Cuvée "The Phantom", which is blended from Blaufränkisch , Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and aged in French barriques. Other premium wines are the "Forever" (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) and "Girmer" (made from 50-year-old Zweigelt vines) that have been aged for 38 months in barrels. Wines are stored in the cellar until 1974, including the first Phantom vintage from 1987. Around 200,000 bottles of wine are produced every year.
