The “Capucines” have been faithful to the alsacian tradition which believes that the best is just quite good. Therefor they have committed themselves fervently in the way showed by their elders, having for aim: the constant search of perfection and of the best product.
Our wine culture is marked by the respect of nature which mothers them, we turn to account the best of tradition without leaving out innovation in our choices of comportment and of treatment of the vines, resting on biological methods. One third of the vineyard is under biodynamy since 1998.
The Clos des Capucins, a historic soil, extends over 5 hectares, protected by the surrounding walls of the former Capuchin monastery. The latter is quoted as soon as 890, the year when the empress Richarde gave it to the Abbey of Etival, which left a part of the soil to the Capuchin monks.
At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill, you’ll find the Domaine Weinbach surrounded by vines and roses. Named after the ” wine brook “, the little stream that meanders through the estate, Domaine Weinbach was established in 1612 by Capuchin monks.
