The Kerner grape variety is ideal for creating a superb dessert wine. The ripened grapes are left to dry for a 5 months. During this period, the weight of the grapes is reduced to less than half while its sugar content increases. After pressing, the sugar content reaches about 38%. After slow fermentation in stainless steel vats, the new wine is put to age in barriques for about five months, and then decanted into 0.375 litre bottles.

The result is a sweet, golden wine, with an aroma of exotic fruits, orange zest and honey. The "Cresta" tastes very good with sweet dishes and very strong cheese, especially with blue cheese like Roquefort and Gorgonzola.
The St. Valentin Comtess' is an especially rare speciality of the winery. A dessert wine of irresistible type, complexity and finesse. After a late harvest (mid-November) Gewürztraminer grapes are mixed with those of Riesling, Sauvignon and dried in wooden crates for several weeks, then they are pressed and transferred to a steel casket for maturation. Comtess' is characterised by a multiface - ted bouquet with aromas reminiscent of roses, cinamon and nutmeg. The young, fresh fragrances intensify in their complexity when correctly matured in the bottle, gradually assuming discrete hints of honey. An elegantly tasteful dessert wine with a full-bodied, fresh acidity which pairs harmoniously with the matching residual sweetness. It unleashes on the palate a delicate symphony of impressions and experiences, which leave behind a lasting effect. A wine with a future, which can be left to mature at the winery for several years without further ado.
Color: deep impenetrable ruby with violet reflections Smell: This Lagrein selection is a multifaceted wine. It reveals aromas reminiscent of morello cherry and bilberry, with notes of licorice, coffee beans, vanilla, clove and black tea, which makes it spicy and fruity at the same time. Taste: The wine is harmonious on the palate with very compact and concentrated, multilayered flavors combining juicy fruit with spicy, peppery elements and a slightly sweet note of dark chocolate rounded off with silky tannins.
