Burgundian Varietals Reign Supreme
Joining forces with neighboring wineries, the group has a total of 20 hectares of land dedicated to viticulture. Seven hectares of grapes are purchased from other estates. The owner mainly focuses on the cultivation of Burgundian varietals. The climate in Baden is perfect for the development of these varietals so they reign supreme in the region. Alexander produces top-notch red and white wines, together with delicious rosé and sparkling wines, all under different vineyard labels, Bötzinger Eckberg, Bötzinger Lasenberg, Bahlinger Silberberg and Eichstetter Herrenbuck.
Great Attention to Aroma and Quality
In the cellar, selective bunches undergo slow and cold fermentation at Zimmerlin Winery, followed by a long rest on lees that enhances the richness and quality of each wine. They pay great attention to keep the aromas of each wine intact. After fermentation, the wines are stored in wooden barrels for proper aging and refining of grains, under controlled temperature conditions.
