Barrique ageing is Roland Riegelnegg’s passion – and his efforts in this area were rewarded with the “Tonnellerie Sylvain Trophy” at the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon in 2021. The Sauvignon blanc Ried Sernauberg Exzellenz 2018 was named the best Sauvignon aged in barriques in the world. A wine with a complex interplay of aromas that you have to give time to enjoy.
