Vinification method of Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg
Our winemaker follows with a special care the rules of the specific legislation of the Appellation Alsace Grand Cru. He controls the maturity in the selected plots until the harvest, which usually starts mid of september. The bunches are exclusively harvested by hand, and are crushed in our pneumatic press on low-pressure programs. After fermentation and vinification, the wine stays many months on fine lies in order to gain in structure, before bottling end of spring and maturation in the bottle.
