"We don't talk about quality - we take quality for granted."
Hanspeter Ziereisen

Quality is mainly generated in the vineyard. We work with utmost care to create the conditions for high-class wines. In the cellar we only do the minimum of work necessary allowing the wines to rest and time to mature.

"The French swear by their terroir - in this respect I am a Frenchman."
Hanspeter Ziereisen

Our philosophy is that wines should reflect their provenance as purely as possible. This is why we treat our vines and wines with great care by minimizing chemical treatments and filtration. In the vineyards we try to make use of the traditions that our ancestors passed along to us.
"We produce muscular wines. Not sumo wrestlers but decathletes; smooth, elegant, strong, and athletic."

Strength and balance is our target. We aim to achieve a balance between acidity, tannin, alcohol, and aroma.

"Our wines reflect their vintage. No year tastes quite like another."

"Recipe winemaking is a horror for us. Individuality is the signature of Ziereisen."
