After selective manual harvesting, they are processed without mechanical stress if possible. Cold maceration(cryomaceration) is used for both red and white wines. The Burgweg Riesling is reduced to a maximum yield of 35 hl/ha and undergoes an eight-hour . The Glockenspiel Spätburgunder is reduced to a maximum of 2,000 l/ha, aged for 18 months in French barriques and bottled without filtration.
