Our wines
Varietal wines, alsatian Crémant, Grand Cru Kaefferkopf... let us guide you and make you discover our range of products. With a simple or gastronomic meal, on a festive occasion or simply for pleasure, our wines will know how to please all palates.
THE "ESSENTIALS"
Produced from our downhill and plain vines, they express the typical features of every grape variety through a wide aroma range. The varieties are : Riesling, alsatian Muscat, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir. From apéritif through a good meal to dessert, they will know how to highlight the dish they are served with, but won't dominate the flavors.

 
THE CRÉMANT WINES
Produced from a vinification dictated by ancestral methods from the Champagne region. White or rosé, they are prone to any festive and sparkling time ! Brut white for apéritifs and parties, brut rosé for an eccentric apéritif as well, or with dessert...
 
THE CUVÉES
Old vines, gastronomic, late harvest, in this range are available some original wines, sometimes atypical but also ephemeral...

Vieilles Vignes (Old Vines)
These cuvées are produced from vines aged 30 to 45 years.
Low yield, later harvests, selective sorting. They are wines made for pleasure, in which can be found the typical features of the grape variety, mixed with over-maturation. Riesling Vieilles Vignes, Auxerrois Vieilles Vignes and Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes...

Gastronome
As the name suggests, this cuvée is intended for fine meals. Plot selection, harvest at the most appropriate time, dry vinification : such criteria allow for recognisable wines, expressing their terroir. Pinot Gris and Gastronome go well with poultry, white meat...

Tentation Boisé & Tentation Rosé
Pinot Noir, being the only red alsatian variety, is a delicate one, which grapes are black. It's only the berry maceration that gives it this beautiful cherry red color, and only the Pinot Noir coming from our best plots are vinified during 18 months in new oak barrels. This vinification brings slight toasty and woody notes, without masking the lovely typical red fruit features.
Tentation Rosé comes from our Pinot Noir variety as well, vinified in Rosé, with a short maceration time, allowing a beautiful typical colour. Cool and fruity, it reminds of red berries. A friendly wine for friendy moments, on terrace... Why not try it ?

Vendanges Tardives (Late Harvests)
Exceptional wines, syrupy, yellow-gold colored... Rich, complex, subtle, here is what defines very well these wines, produced from Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris varieties.
Wine of patience and made for ageing... Patience, as only a nice end of season will allow the harvest of grapes at desired ripeness. For ageing because, although they are naturally rich in residual sugar, these wines are "held" by an also natural acidity, which can keep them up to 15 years in bottle.
 
THE TERROIR WINES
Wines coming from denser, hillside plots, grown on sloping grounds, with a more marked geological identity (granite and limestone) and a south / south-east exposure... Maturity, healthy and sorted harvest, low yield are the ultimate conditions allowing to produce these terroir wines.

The Terrasses (Terraced)
They come from the place known as Katzenstegel, on a south-east exposed granite hill. The Riesling and Pinot Gris plots are terraced, in order to take advantage of the best this soil can offer while respecting its morphology. The terroir gives these wines a wonderful and fine minerality.

Grand Cru Kaefferkopf - Read the (french) Wikipedia article
This terroir, quoted since 1338, is the jewel of our dear wine growing town. Certified "Grand Cru" in 2007, its vines spread on 71Ha of deep granite and limestone soils. They are south / south-east exposed and benefit from a microclimate allowing an optimal maturity for its grapes, while keeping their sweet coolness.
From our plots grow Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. Elegance, aromatic palette, length, minerality : Kaefferkopf's expression in all its majesty. Distinctive feature of this "La Trilogie" Grand Vintage : the harmonious blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, ending in a wine with rare delicacy.
