The conversion to organic viticulture, which has been practiced for years, was completed in 2016 with the certification. The quality criteria are narrow planting distances, low yields, foliage wall design and minimal use of plant protection products(herbicides) and fertilization. In some years, the selective manual harvesting of grapes in several passes with optimal ripeness extends over nine weeks. Gentle pressing is followed by spontaneous fermentation in principle. The white wines are matured in stainless steel as well as a quarter in wood, mainly in half-barrels (600 litres). The red wines are aged after the traditional maceration with long maceration and biological acid reduction to 95% in wooden barrels from 225(barrique) to 1,800 litres; most of them in 300-litre barrels. Bottling is carried out, if possible without filtration. Fine spirits (yeast, marc, fruit) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
