The Dietrich family has farmed land in Alsace since 1600. In the past the family farm used to be run on the basis of polyculture however the family now concentrate on growing grape vines and other fruit. In 1999 Yves converted the estate to organic farming (at the time he would sell his grapes to the local cave-cooperative). Pierre and Jean took over the responsibility of the winery in 2016, and were the first members of the family to bottle the estate’s wines. The estate has been farmed with biodynamics ever since 2003.
A Champagne-like sparkler from Alsace with a most elegant little bubble and pale coral colour. This intriguing blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chardonnay and Riesling is light and dry, a dainty even, with subtle aromatics to draw you in.
