The Riesling is mainly planted in the Bollenberg plot and also in the Grand Cru vineyards of Saering and Kessler. Some younger vines are planted in the Grand Cru Kitterle plot.

After slow pneumatic pressing the must is left to settle on the lees. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled tuns for between 1 and 4 months. The wine is then left to age for a further 6 to 8 months on the lees.

Riesling is Alsace's noblest and finest grape variety. Although it was introduced in the 15th century by the Rhineland, it actually originates from the Orleanois region. It is very different to its German counterpart and from the numerous Rieslings that can now be found throughout the world.
