The winery has belonged to the same family for 8 generations and since its inception its aim has been to produce the best Riesling in Moselle. It cultivates Pinot Blanc and Riesling in plots with slate soils. Their oldest vineyards are around 100 years old and are planted without grafting.

The plot for Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Auslese White Capsule is found in the mythical Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard. Their vines are up to 100 years old, and the soil is made up of small layers of slate and produce extremely aromatic ripe grapes.

To produce Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Auslese White Capsule, only the healthy grapes previously selected in the vineyard are vinified. In the cellar they are pressed gently and the must is macerated for several hours with its aromatic skins. After maceration, it ferments with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks and large wooden barrels. Lastly, the fermentation is followed by ageing on lees for a few months so that the wine gains complexity, volume and creaminess.

Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Auslese White Capsule is a white wine that is fruity and intense yet balanced, elegant and very complex.
