News from the Vineyard February/March 2014 March 4, 2014
During Jannuary, February and March we are cutting and pruning the vines. These are the first very important steps for the 2014 quality. Quantity regulations are important, but these are mainly done ofter growing and then again after flowering. The cutting and pruning is very important for the whole growing, because we always have in our mind that the grapes should not be affected by direct sunlight, because than the skins would get burned and you loose quality.
Also we are preparing some vineyards for new plantings. On the Sausaler Schlössl we will plant about 1 hectare of Sauvignon Blanc and on the Gola Single Vineyard we will plant on 4 hectares Chadonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. We have been able in renting for long time these 4 hectares and now happy that the Gola Single Vineyard is a Monopole Vineyard of our family.
If you have a look at the relief Picture of the Gola, you can imagine that the wines will be very mineral driven.
