Notes on the producer

The domaine dates back to 1848 and is located in the historical village of Wolxheim, 20km due west of Strasbourg. Bruno Schloegel, an agronomist and scientist, took over his uncle Clément Lissner in 2001 and was joined by his son Théo early on. The pair have carefully established an amazingly diverse fauna and flora in their vineyards, they do not plough, mow or trim the vines but just arrange and weave the shoots during summer to let mother nature express itself. Their wild vineyards have created a bit of stir in the region, Bruno and Théo are vocal (and extremely knowledgeable) advocates of this Fukuoka inspired approach. 

Winemaking at Lissner respects the great grape material – work by gravity as opposed to pumping, slow pressing (6 to 10 hours), long fermentation and élevage on fine lees in traditional Alsatian foudres. Wines are bottled without fining or filtration keeping some carbonic gas as a natural protection, SO2 is rarely used at all. The end result is a stunning reflection of the vineyard’s stamina and vitality
