Vinification of the Pergentsknopp Wiltingen Scharzhofberger Riesling GG by Van Volxem
The basis for the elegant Pergentsknopp Wiltingen Scharzhofberger Riesling GG from the Moselle is grapes from the Riesling grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions on the Mosel.

This traditional form of vineyard design is unfortunately very costly and therefore rarely found anymore.

When perfectly ripe, the grapes for Pergentsknopp Wiltingen Scharzhofberger Riesling GG are harvested exclusively by hand without the aid of coarse and less selective grape harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery. Here they are selected and carefully crushed.
