Alsace RICH & FRUITY

 

Alsace a land of wine

The Alsace vineyards are the northernmost in France and Europe. Interlaced by the picturesque Alsace Wine Route, they stretch from North to South covering 119 villages and towns.

15,500 hectares of vines, a kaleidoscope of fertile soils and exceptional diversity. The Alsace vineyards offer a most sumptuous range of vintage white wines that are refreshing and aromatic, from the driest to the smoothest palette.

At the heart of the wine-growing region of the Golden Crown, at the northern entrance to the Alsace Wine Route, Maison Arthur Metz is a major stakeholder in the wine industry and one of the leading producers of sparkling Alsace Crémant.

Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Sylvaner, Pinot Gris: located in Epfig, on the foothills of the Vosges Mountains Domaine Sainte-Marguerite produces all the grape varieties in Alsace over a total surface area of 8.5 hectares.

Founded by Martin Klipfel in 1824, Maison Klipfel is one of the largest wine-growing estates in Alsace, with 35 ha of vineyards of which almost 15 ha are Grand Vintage Wines including the celebrated Kirchberg in Barr, with its marly limestone soil, and the prestigious Clos Zisser. The company sells 1.5 million bottles per year.

Founded in 1895, Domaine Viticole de la Ville de Colmar works an estate of more than 28 hectares, with its eponymous vineyard and Clos Saint-Jacques, not forgetting the prestigious Hospices de Colmar vineyard. The domain also reaches out to the best hillsides in the surrounding villages where some of the most renowned vintage wines are produced.

Our activity covers the entire wine-growing and wine-producing process: from winemaking to maturation and bottling. Our facilities are located in all the wine-growing areas of Alsace and so we are in a position to select the best terroirs on ideally situated plots of land and therefore make exceptional wines and crémant while closely respecting the local traditions. And, of course, we pay meticulous attention to the quality of the vines, grapes and our wines.

In partnership with nearly 620 wine-growers covering 1,090 hectares, together we have drawn up:

  • specifications for working the vines,
  • a winemaking strategy founded on the quality of wine-growers and facilities alike,
  • an optimised monitoring system for the winemaking process.

And always with the aim of guaranteeing the consistent quality signed Arthur Metz, year after year.
