Profile of the winegrower

Chantal et Christophe Braun . .

On the road of wines, in the heart of the vineyard of Alsace, is located a peaceful village of Orschwihr, home to the Braun family. At the top of the unusual hill of Bollenberg, the chapel peaks and overlooks this village. All around extends the family vineyard in the prestigious terroirs of Pfingstberg, Bollenberg et Lippelsberg. In 1960, Camille Braun decided to stop polyculture to focus on the most beautiful of all, viticulture. 27 years later, he entrusted the responsibility of the estate to his children, Christophe et Marie-Laure. Today, the vines extend to the village of "Uffholtz", birthplace of Chantal, the wife of Christopher. Their use of the vine is respectful of the environment and the originality of the different soils. The estate's wines express themselves with a great honesty and a perfect balance.
