ABOUT THIS WINE
Old vines from two different terroirs: - the Monopole vineyard of the Clos des Capucins: sand silt soil on granite pebbles - the bottom of the Grand Cru Schlossberg: granite soil.
Hand-picked at optimum maturity to reinforce the aromatic expression and body of the wines.
Gently pressed in whole clusters in pneumatic presses, fermentation with indigenous yeasts (element of the terroir, enhances depth and complexity in the wines) in old oak vats.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill, in a setting of vines and roses, the Domaine Weinbach "wine stream", named after the small stream that crosses it, was built in 1612 by the Capuchin monks.
Sold as national property during the French Revolution, the Estate was acquired in 1898 by the Faller brothers who passed it on to their son and nephew Théo. A great figure in the Alsatian vineyard and ardent promoter of its recognition as an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, Théo Faller works for the quality of Alsace wines and the development of their incomparable terroirs and grape varieties. In love with his property, he develops it, enlarges it and embellishes it.
From 1979, his wife Colette and his daughters Catherine and Laurence demonstrated the same passion for the great wines of Alsace and the same unfailing attachment to quality.
Since 2016, Catherine Faller has been running the Domaine with her sons Eddy and Théo.
