Info about the wine

The VDP.GUTSWEINE are a meticulous selection of grapes grown on the limestone slopes of the Wonnegau around Hohen-Sülzen and in the Zellertal. Harvested by hand, strictly selected, spontaneously fermented, matured in large old double barrels and finally left "sur lie" until well into spring.

Info about the expansion

In 2020, the construction of the underground ageing cellar was completed, which simulates the characteristics of a natural cellar. Its purpose is to allow the wines, which are bottled after a long period of lees ageing, an extended period of maturation and storage under perfect conditions. Each wine that leaves the winery after years of maturation receives a separate "treasure collection" label to guarantee provenance in the winery's maturation cellar under ideal conditions. The Réserve is a filling of two double barrels, which was only bottled in October 2018 and has now been released for sale after more than two further years of maturation in the cellar.
