Domaine Josmeyer

 

 

Situated as it is at Wintzenheim, near Colmar, our Domain has the benefit of an exceptional micro-climate and one of the lowest annual rainfall in the whole of France. The Domain extends to some 28 hectares (28% Riesling, 24% Pinot Blanc & Auxerrois, 21% Pinot Gris, 19% Gewurztraminer and 10% Sylvaner, Muscat & Pinot Noir) and has always been cultivated with respect for nature. 

 

Towards the end of the nineties, the vineyards were turned over to fully organic and bio-dynamic culture. In 2004 they received the AB (agriculture biologic) certification. This alternative route, more demanding and expensive than conventional viticulture, allows man to work in harmony with the sky, the earth and the vines. This close relationship between these four elements produces superb grapes which, in their turn, give birth to deep, balanced wines with a unique personality.  Today the estate is run by the two sisters; Cêline and Isabelle Josmeyer.
