There is a restrained, cool fermentation. Afterwards, the quality white wines mature in steel tanks, the predicate wines and red wines in large wooden barrels. If the weather is suitable, an ice wine is also made. Grape juices, bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine spirits (pomace, wine, fruit) are also produced.
