These days a modern and ambitions wine company, but one with very long history and traditions of wine production. The winery produces its wines in a new and high tech winery employing modern wine technology and wine making styles, but it also neighbours with an old chateau cellar with historic wooden barrels (some as old as 300 years) that are still in use today. So it is quite safe and OK to say that this is where history and tradition meets the new age of winemaking and wine styles.
The production is mostly focused on white wines that account for vast majority of the overall production with Riesling being recognized as the key variety and wine. The company has recently been making considerable investments for the future by planting new vineyards and is soon to be recognized as one of the biggest vineyard owner in the country giving them great deal of independence and mainly a strategic position on the market.
