Vins Paul Fahrer

The vineyards are located near the village of Orschwiller in central Alsace which is known for the medieval castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg.

Over 60% of the vines are old ones  of more than 25 years. Rains which come mostly from the west are divided by the hills and therefore give a drier and hotter climate.

That phenomenon associated with east or south-east exposure permits earlier grape maturation.

On the hills, soils are composed of mineral and crystal rich light sands and in the plains of clay and silt. Some plots can also combine those two characteristics in variable proportions.

Nature gives a certain geology and weather but they are using their know-how in order to obtain grapes at the ripest point possible.

That’s why they are trying to improve the soil’s life by ploughings or natural grass for example.

Their wine estate practises a very reasonable managed viticulture with no chemical fertilizers and very few weedkillers.

This family wine estate consists now of 6,5 hectares vineyards which have been since 2009 managed by Jean-Yves Fahrer who gained experience in Chili and California before taking the lead of the family estate.
