Cellar and office work

While others are presenting their newest wines, we concentrate on preparing the wines for bottling the new vintage at the beginning of the new year. It is important to constantly monitor the development of the wines in the temperature-controlled tanks and to counteract something going not the way it should. These months are also important for blending and achieving the right balance in the wine. Since most of our wine is exported, it needs very thorough and long checks in the lab to avoid any kind of unwanted turbidity or cloudiness such as tartrate precipitation.
In the office there is usually enough to do: Various steps need to be taken to administer the correct paperwork for exports. Our “Bio-“neer Willi is the man for this part.

This period is characterized by loud banging throughout the vineyards and nets covering the canopies to prevent birds from eating the crop. The moment
