The formerly Prussian estate completed in 1898 with its landmarked chateau-character towering high above the Saar river possesses two steep slate vineyards – the Serriger Herrenberg and Serriger Würtzberg. We currently cultivate 14 hectares, 9 of which are Riesling, 3 Pinot Blanc, 1 Pinot Noir and 1 Auxerrois.
Individual, authentic wines can only be produced from selected vineyards through a great deal of manual labor. Highest focus on quality and environmentally friendly winemaking, including organic fertilization, winter pruning and selective hand-picking in our steep slate slops, are aimed at producing elegant Saar wines.
Once harvested, all grapes are placed on a sorting table where well-trained staff manually remove any substandard grapes to ensure the highest level of quality. The grapes that pass our rigorous quality control are then gently pressed. The fresh must flows into the 2-storey cellar where it is pre-clarified through natural sedimentation. The intended style determines the choice of container – either wooden barrels or stainless steel tanks. Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeast flora ensures the creation of especially distinguished and authentic wines. We like to call this kind of winemaking “controlled idleness”. The wine is then swiftly bottled in order to preserve freshness and allow the aging process in the bottle.
