Bottling wines

Because German wines are low in alcohol and often have some residual sugar, they must be bottled with particular care. Consequently, they are sterile bottled, whereby the wine is pumped through a very fine filter that removes the last traces of sediment as well as any yeast cells that may still be present (to prevent refermentation). It is now clean, clear and stable and ready to fill sterilized bottles which will be sealed withsterilized corks.

Alcohol should be consumed in moderation, abuse may damage your health. The consumption of alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small amounts, can have severe consequences to the health of your child.
