Nestled in the Noble Valley in the heart of the Vosges Balloons Natural Park, it is protected from thunderstorms by the Petit and Grand Ballon (1267 and 1427 meters). This valley is an arena of about 4 kms in diameter, sheltered from the prevailing winds where we observe updrafts that caress our wine hillsides. Our vineyard enjoys a favorable climate, they colonize the hillsides 2 kilometers around, up to 450 meters above sea level.
During the harvest, about twenty people join us. We harvest grapes exclusively by hand, in a joyful atmosphere that celebrates the wine to come. The grapes are pressed gently for 8 to 12 hours, to extract all the material and aromas. Juices flow by gravity into the cellar where they will ferment slowly with their own yeast. The wines are aged in old oak barrels for whites and barrels for reds. We add a little sulfur before bottling, it's the only product we use. It protects the wine and ensures its conservation.
A cellar door adorns our labels. This is the entrance to our cellar which is a braided straw door. The legacy of 18th century know-how that can only be found in our valley. Originality of our house, it is its emblem. Since 1640 in the Noble Valley, the Domaine had moved to Soultzmatt in an old tithe house in the early 1800s. Since 1996, bottles have been stored and marketed in Westhalten. In 2010, we created a new buried cellar with limestone blocks and shaped a bioclimatic building with a wooden structure, straw insulation and green roofs.
