Who are we
We are winegrowers in Orschwiller in the center of Alsace. We are a family farm. The vineyard stretches over 10 hectares. We produce the seven varieties of vine as well a designation wine : grand cru Praelatenberg. We offer a wide range coming from old vineyard : vieille vigne. The oldest vine is almost 60 years old. Each of our wines has its own personality with a high degree of maturity. We have different soils : granitic, clay and sandy terroir. The soil is covered with grass and worked many times. We use as many organic products as possible to respect the environment. Our estate is qualified HEV : certification recognition of the environmental performance of farmers. Our estate is in its third year of conversion to organic farming. Our wine are aged in oak wood or stainless steel vats. The wine is bottled in our own winery. We harvest by hand over a period of three months in order to ajust to the differences in maturations. We use a pneumatic pressing process. The whole grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press to preserve the aromas and the complexity of each grape varieties and soils. The juices are fermented at a low temperature. The wine are filtered and put into the bottles. The fermentation is made from indigenous yeasts and the wine are built up for 6 months on their own lees. We invite you to discover our beautiful region and take time to test our wines in our cellar and also enjoy the good traditional Alsa tian food.
