Francois Schmitt Description

François Schmitt comes from a long line of wine producers. At the beginning of the 1970s he took over the family farm in the heart of the village, which at that time consisted of three hectares of vines.

To continue and consolidate operations, François embarked on the acquisition of several plots of land notably on the Bollenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg slopes, terroirs which today make up close to 80% of the Domaine’s hectarage.

In 1984, François began constructing new buildings at the village entrance to enable him to efficiently gather in the grape harvest, and then make and bottle it. Two larger vats were added, the first in 1995 and the second in 2004, and then in 2010, François’ wife, Myriam, joined the family business.

In 1998, their son Frédéric had also joined the Domaine, fresh from his superb training in viticulture and oenology in two of France’s top wine towns, Rouffach (in Alsace) and Beaune (in Bourgogne). Several internships rounded off his training, notably at Chateau Guiraud (Sauternes) and Domaine Pierre Bebin (Val de Loire). He is passionate about Grands Vins (fine wines) and it is this which drives him to strive for the best possible quality.

A harmonious blend of all of the grape varieties on the Bollenberg terroir, this dry, full-bodied and fruity wine is the ideal accompaniment to aperitifs, tapas evenings or white meats.
