Since taking over the family winery at the age of 18, Bernard Bohn has crafted an individually unique style of wines on the only outcrop of schist terroir in Alsace. The Bohn family members have been winegrowers for well over three centuries in Reichsfeld, a small village at the far end of the valley, where until recently, the local Alsatian dialect was still more common than French. Today, Bernard and his son Arthur farm just over 9 hectares and go beyond organic agriculture to incorporate uncommon techniques, such as completely abandoning vineyard plowing and allowing cover crops to coexist to create balance in the vines.

The cuvée "En Vrac" is a non-vintage blend of Riesling and Sylvaner aged for two years in foudres, then bottled a l'ancienne (the old-fashioned way), unfined and unfiltered. Arthur Bohn writes: "The label comes from a postcard collector in the village who found this historic image of the Domaine Bohn. It's an homage to the older generations who still transported the wines in barrel on horse-drawn carriages. The wine was delivered "en vrac" (in bulk), and we chose to honor this forgotten practice by recreating an authentic cuvée inspired by the first generations of the domaine."
