THE PRESTIGE LINE
Setting aside predicate wines, the Prestige line represents the pinnacle of our quality pyramid. It offers our Blaufränkisch Prestige and Blaufränkisch Gourmet: select sites and select grapes, pressed into select wines. “Great red wines” or grands vins as we call them require wood. With years of aging, the tannins are reshaped, becoming soft, sweetish and velvety as the wine acquires tertiary aromas. The Prestige line also rests in one-third new barriques and two-thirds used ones, so that the wood's impressions aren't too overpowering.
