CRAFTING CLASSIC WINES FROM THE VINEYARDS OF THE ROMANTIC RHINE SINCE 1857
Many stages are involved before a finished bottle of Blue Nun wine is ready to be consumed.
Throughout the year a wine-grower has various tasks to tend to in order to ensure the right flavour, aroma and quality is achieved. Here´s a quick run through some of the most important elements.
In January or February, the old wood is pruned away, a procedure that influences the potential yield and ultimately, the quality of the wine. This is a crucial part of the Sichel Superior Vinification philosophy.
Vineyard activities peak in the springtime. Before the buds burst, the vine´s shape takes form through bending and tying the canes in order to ensure an adequate nutrient supply to the shoots. Ploughing and seeding for green covering, as well as the natural growth of plants in the vineyard, brings the soil to life.
