Domaine de la Vieille Forge Gewürztraminer


With his diploma in oenology, Denis Wurtz has been reviving since 1998 the estate of his grandparents in Beblenheim, whose name evokes the profession of one of his ancestors. Installed in a 16th century half-timbered house in the heart of the gorgeous Alsatian vineyards. The Vieille Forge Estate runs 10 acres where 1/3 is dedicated to the production of Grands Cru wines.

To the south of Riquewihr, the vineyard is situated in a natural circus oriented gently towards the south-east. Its clay-marly soils are favorable to gewurztraminer. This enchants with the intensity and finesse of its aromatic palette.

A sensational wine, it will assert itself with spicy dishes from other continents, cheeses and even desserts.
