Domaine André Rohrer is based in Mittelbergheim, in the northern part of Alsace region and is run by young and talented Ludovic Rohrer. The Rohrer family have been making wine in the region for eight generations. Today they farm organically and biodynamically across eight hectares of vines including 0.18 hectares in the Grand Cru Zotzenberg.
This conversion in the vineyard over the past decades has allowed them to improve the purity of their wines, with the full expression of their terroirs. Perfect expertise of vinification and natural winemaking, these wines are as pure as they come. Organic and biodynamic farming in the vineyard along with hand harvesting is followed in the cellar by traditional ageing in old Alsacian oak foudres. Most of the wines have no filtration and no sulphur added, only the wines with residual sugar are lightly filtered and lightly sulphured so they remain stable. It is also common that the family will hold wines longer in the cellar when a vintage or a cuvee needs it.
With such care comes outstanding wines of purity, texture, honesty, generosity and length. These are wine to be sought out and savoured.
‘Esch Hab Di Garn’ meaning ‘I love you’ in Alsatian. This is a multi-vintages blend of Gewurztraminer, Auxerrois, Sylvaner (with skin contact) and a little Riesling and Muscat.
