ABOUT THE WINERY
At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill in Alsace stands one of the finest estates in all of France. In the words of Robert Parker, “Colette and her daughter Laurence…pushed Weinbach to the pinnacle of Alsace’s qualitative pyramid.” Today Domaine Weinbach is run with consummate skill and total dedication by Catherine Faller and her son, Théo.
It was established by the Order of Capuchin monks in 1612. The “Clos des Capuchins” vineyard surrounds the domaine; the prestigious “Schlossberg” vineyard (the first terroir in Alsace to receive the status of Grand Cru), the Grand Cru “Furstentum”, and the adjacent “Altenbourg” vineyard rise above the clos. The domaine has 62 acres of vineyards in the heart of Kayserberg’s hills and valleys.
