  • Other InformationLocated in Alsace on an old Renaissance period farm in the center of a tiny village named Mittelbergheim lies Domaine Rietsch, the small winery ran by 7 generations of the Rietsch family. Since 1987, Jean-Pierre Rietsch has led the operation with organic methods, believing the number one principle of winemaking is to express the heart and soul of the grapes and the land that grew them. Zero synthetic chemicals are used in Rietsch’s low intervention methods. This wine is made from Pinot Gris harvested from the marl-limestone terroirs of Mittelbergheim and the limestone-sandstone terroir of Stierkopf in Mutzig. Harvested on September 17, 2019. Resulting from a maceration of whole bunches fermented in juice for 28 days. Spontaneous fermentation from indigenous yeasts. Aging on lees for 8 months in tuns. Clarifying filtration on cellulose plates. Slight sulphiting during fermentation.
