Quality comes from the vineyard.[four_fifth]In the cellar when it comes to wine-making Martin Hirtl favours processing methods that bring out the specific character of the individual varieties and pursues the philosophy that wines must give expression to the character of their place of origin and the grapes from which they are made.
The grapes of the white wines are processed immediately after harvesting to avoid oxydation and are then stored in stainless steel tanks for resting and maturing.
The grapes of the red wines are fermented directly with the must to let the colour of the skins diffuse in the fermented juice.
The red wines then ripen and mature in big wooden casks and new French oak barriques.[/four_fifth][one_fifth_last][/one_fifth_last]
