The vineyards cover 6.5 hectares of vines in the steep areas of the individual Falkenberg vineyards, Goldtröpfchen
and Günterslay (Piesport). They are mainly planted with Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. The quality criteria in the vineyard are a short cut with only one arch with six to nine eyes, a targeted one Defoliation
the grape zone and selective hand picking in often several passes with the aim of loose, small-berry, healthy grapes with optimal physiological maturity
and a maximum of 60hl / ha yield (sometimes even a maximum of 40hl / ha is achieved).
Great emphasis is placed on strictly gentle grape processing in the cellar. The focus in the expansion is on residual sweet Riesling wines with a distinctive layered character. All wines are made without the use of any pure breeding yeast spontaneous
fermented. For white wines, this is done slowly in a steel tank and checked at cool temperatures of around 12 ° Celsius. The red wines are partly matured in large wooden barrels and partly in small barrels. Before bottling, the wines are filtered only once. Through the strictest manual selection of the grapes, berry selection and dry berry selection form the noble sweet top of Rieslings almost every year. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and grape juices (red, white) are also produced.
