Vineyard & Wine Region Information
Bernkasteler Badstube grapes are harvested and rigorously sorted so that only the very healthiest are used for the wine. On arrival at the winery the grapes are crushed softly and macerated for several hours on their skins in order to extract the maximum flavours. After maceration the must is fermented in large wooden barrels using naturally occurring yeasts. Long-term storage on the fine lees follows fermentation, which results in a fine fruity and well balanced wine.
