Notes from the producer:

"We are a family-owned and operated Wine Importer, focusing on small production vignerons, who farm ethically and who produce authentic wines. Our producers are about as far from a luxury wine estate as you can get. There are no fancy on-site tasting bars, lounges, patios or restaurants. There is a cellar, perhaps a barn for equipment, the vineyards, and honestly crafted wines.

 Each vigneron we represent has a deep connection not just to their vineyards, but to the diverse flora and fauna that help give life to the vines. These vineyards are active, living ecosystems, and our producers toil daily to ensure that this harmony is not interrupted. We believe the best wines come from healthy grapes, grown using Organic or Biodynamic principles, fermented using natural yeasts and crafted in the cellar with minimal inputs.

We are fortunate to represent the wines of these dedicated vignerons, and we are honored to bring not only their wines to your table but also their stories."

Cremant d'Alsace
Sylvaner, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Chasselas
Multiple parcels located predominately on the alluvial gravel soils of the plains surrounding the village of Scherwiller. A small portion of the grapes used in 2019 are from Granite soils
All 9 grape varieties were harvested on the same day, directly pressed upon arrival in the cellar, and blended in stainless steel tanks. This was followed by one-night of lees settling before the start of fermentation. The alcoholic co-fermentation began naturally using only indigenous yeasts and no sulfur additions were made during the fermentation. No stirring of the lees and the wine completed malolactic fermentation.
