, Attached is a hotel with restaurant, which operates under the name "Weinhotel Ayler Kupp". The traditional company is run by Florian Lauer in the fifth generation of the family. The vineyards cover eight hectares, which are planted exclusively with Riesling. The main situation Ayler Kupp
can be subdivided into three characteristic areas that are harvested and expanded separately.

After the obligatory Whole bunch pressing
with partial maceration, the must is preclarified and stored in a large wooden barrel ( fuder
with 1,000 liters) traditional fermented spontaneously
, This is followed by a long storage on the lees to round off the flavors of the wines in a natural way. The barrel numbers are indicated on the bottle label. The wines are in the flavors dry to fine dry (TF), fine dry (F) and sweet (without characters, but always predicate) expanded, which is indicated by the letter codes at the bottom of the label. The dry and fine dry Rieslings are marketed uniformly as "quality wine". The predicate names Spätlese, Auslese and Beerenauslese are only used for the noble sweet wines. Every year around 50,000 bottles of wine are produced.
