The indigenous grape Chasselas (a.k.a. Gutedel, Fendant) is the focus of the white wine production. Chasselas is a noble grape which is, in Ziereisen's opinion, underestimated. They seek to exploit the untapped potential for this typical Markgräflerland grape. In order to do this They employ unconventional methods for its development. They significantly reduce harvest levels for this grape in the best terrains and conduct a pre-fermentation maceration before placing the wine for long storage on its own yeasts to mature in 600-liter wooden barrels. As with all their wines they only do the absolute minimum necessary in the cellar. The must is cleared only by sedimentation with natural additives, the wines ferment spontaneously without use of added yeast and rest a long time on their fine yeasts, giving them requisite time to mature. The high-level, old vine Pinots blanc and gris as well as the Chardonnays are filled in bottles without filtration after approximately two years in the barrels.
