Domain: Weinbach

The success of this domain, which literally means “Stream of wine”, is nothing new. It is the result of the unrelenting work of Théo Faller, who ardently defended the Alsatian wine region before handing the reins over to his wife and daughters. The domain has had biodynamic certification since 2005 and is now managed by Catherine Faller and their two sons Théo and Eddy, who continue to produce vibrant wines made for aging. An essential signature for your cellar.

One of the most beautiful properties in Alsace, the Weinbach vineyard covers just over 26 hectares. The Capuchin monks produced a wine from the early 17th century on the historic terroir of the Clos des Capucins (5 hectares enclosed by walls). Sold as a national asset in the French Revolution, the property was acquired in 1898 by the Faller brothers, who passed it on to their son and nephew, Théo. A major figure in French viticulture and an ardent defender of Alsace's vineyards, largely responsible for their being granted AOC status, Théo Faller died in 1979. His wife Colette and her daughters Catherine and Laurence took charge of the property and continued to build its reputation; it is now known all over the world. Located at the base of the majestic Schlossberg hill, it benefits from an exceptional position that has all of the geological and climate characteristics usually associated with Alsace's finest wines. The vineyard is tended with a deep respect for nature and with a view to expressing each terroir. The harvests are delayed until optimal ripeness; after rigorous selection the grapes are gently, progressively pressed, followed by long fermentations in old oak casks. The property produces successful generic cuvées, but really stands out for its grandes cuvées, named after members of the family, and associated with each terroir.

What the guides say...

  • La Revue du vin de France
“Clos des Capucins is one of those places which are magical, elusive and timeless. It is rare to find a place with so much energy and history, which produces wines of such great purity. […] This is one of the finest expressions of the Schlossberg Grand Cru, on different levels of maturity. Its clarity and precision. We are bowled over by its clarity and precision.”
RVF
  • Bettane & Desseauve
“Weinbach has built its success on the terroirs of the Kaysersbertg-Kientzheim region, producing Schlossberg Rieslings which are probably the purest interpretations possible of a wine from granitic soils.”
