The quality concept is based on limited hectare yields of 6,000 to 7,000 liters per hectare, later selective harvesting by hand, gentle grape processing (without enzyme addition), only first pressing for bottling, extremely cold fermentation, around three months storage on the lees, Filtration only after natural self-clarification (without clarifying agents, blue enhancement, gelatin and metatartaric ) and cold sterile filling (mostly April to July). Grape juice, wine vinegar and bottle-fermented sparkling wine are also produced.
