The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Hohenrain. Marcobrunn. Michel Mark. Siegelsberg and Steinmorgen (Erbach), as well Sandgrub (Kiedrich). They are planted with the varieties Riesling (82%), Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer. It will be a natural management of the vineyards with permanent greening, without herbicides and minimized crop protection. After gentle pressing and cooled, aroma-preserving fermentation, the Riesling wines are stored in a stainless steel tank for a long time lees to get more fruit, fullness and extract. After a long ripening process, the predominantly dry and semi-dry Rieslings are bottled in summer. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay mature in traditional large wooden barrels or in barriques until just before the new harvest. The winery has been a member of the VDP (Association of German quality wine estates).
