Now to Alsace, to Domaine Dischler, located in Wolxheim not far from Strasbourg. Owned by the Dischler family for five generations, the estate is today made up of 11.5 hectares of vines and produces seven varieties, typical of Alsace: Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Riesling and Muscat d’Alsace.
André and Nathalie Dischler, the estate owners, believe in respecting the environment and practise sustainable and integrated vine growing methods with environmentally-friendly treatments. The vineyard is made up of different terroirs, including the famous places known as Rothstein (red stones, former Vosges sandstone quarry), Carrières Royales, Bruderthal in Molsheim and the Grand Cru Altenberg of Wolxheim where they produce their speciality: the Grand Cru Riesling.
This great diversity brings a specific typicality to the different varieties that they cultivate, while respecting the vine.
Since 1850, the Dischler family has transferred their expertise from father to son, to create vintages whose watch words are structure, harmony and elegance.
