The total vineyard property covers 18 hectares with holdings in: Randersacker, Pfülben, Teufelskeller, Marsberg, Sonnenstuhl and Ewig Leben. Viticulture takes place with as little intervention as possible and with respect for nature.
The most important grape variety is the Silvaner, 31%, followed by the Müller-Thurgau with 15%, Riesling 14%, Bacchus 5%, Weißburgunder 5%, 15% Spätburgunder and Domina, 9% other varieties, including: Scheurebe and Rieslaner. Fermentation takes place as much as possible with the yeast cells that occur on the grapes themselves. A pure method of winemaking is part of the standard procedure, which - depending on grape variety and wine style - uses temperature-controlled fermentation on stainless steel or fermentation on oak foeders. Some red and white varieties undergo fermentation and aging in small oak barrels of 225 L. (barrique).
