Sybille’s family have been living in Lieser, in the Mosel, for many generations and have always been involved in aspects of the wine business, from producing barrels to looking after wines for other local growers.  They even acted as wine merchants.  Sybille left home to study and became a wine merchant herself, opening a wine shop to help fund her studies.  She began by selling her family’s wine, and as she began to buy other people’s wines she noticed that the quality of the region was sadly slipping.  

Taking things into her own hands, Sybille returned to the Mosel to begin producing wines on her family’s estate.  To help increase the quality she knew she had to produce a dry wine, and not the sweet style of the 1980s.  She also knew the vineyards must be treated without chemicals, and so began the long process of converting to ’Bio Organic’, finally being certified in 2003.

The grapes are collected during harvest in small crates to ensure that they reach the cellar undamaged.  In the closed tank press skin maceration lasts a few hours to enhance natural aroma extraction.  

The grapes crushed and de-stemmed into open-vats with fermentation on skins for 5-6 weeks at which time the grapes are pressed and the wine goes to foudre and left on fine lees until Spring. No sulphur is added.
