We love the dry white wines of Alsace, and this collection includes all the major grape variets of Alsace
The Biecher family have been making wine in Alsace since 1776. Their cellar in the village of Saint-Hippolyte has been in near constant use since then and is ideally located right in the heart of Alsace, in the foothills of the Vosges.
Alsace is an interesting region as the traditions are a blend of German and French: wines such as Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Gewurztraminer are most at home here, made in the dry style. The Family are the largest producer of Organic wines in the region, and they are delicious
The vineyards of Ribeauvillé have been there since the beginning of time. The Lords of Ribeaupierre and the Benedictine monks were the first to utilise the abundance of natural resources: with its south facing slopes and varying top soils. Despite a history of civil unrest in this area of France from 1895, the Cave de Ribeauvillé has managed to preserve its spirit of solidarity and efficiency in winemaking. From generation to generation, vintage to vintage, grape growers have called for independence in making their own wine without interference. The Cave de Ribeauvillé covers a single vineyard of 265 hectares including 8 Grands Crus and other plots of notable quality. The total surface area is managed by a quality chart, which guarantees strict control of yields, sustainable growth, organic practices, and of course……a manual harvest.
