The wines of this line are ambassadors of our terroir and reflect in a unique way the remarkable strengths of our individual sites. They are from selected vineyards where wine has been produced for centuries. Vinification occurs in steel tanks or wooden barrels, according to variety, so that they develop complexity and a refined bouquet. Strict quality guidelines, intense manual labour and demanding vineyard care and maintenance make them what they are: select wines that are finely structured and full of character.

This all-rounder pairs nicely with light fish dishes, Asian cuisine and vegetable dishes. In spring, it is lovely with asparagus salad with a ham roll filled with Bozner sauce. It is also lovely with goats cheese.
