It was in 1661 that Antoine Fleith began the family business in Ingersheim, Alsace. A few hundred years later, in 1996, Vincent took over the estate of 9 hectares of vines now spread over three villages.
After a few years of work on vineyards around the world, including Australia and California, Vincent returned to the family estate with an idea in mind; to begin the conversion process towards organic cultivation. Upon his return, Vincent removed synthetic fertilizers, chemical weed killers and pesticides. He worked the soils to favor fauna and flora. Lupins, dandelions, daisies, poppies, and ramsons are blooming again in the vineyards; bees and many other insects repopulate them.
In 1999, he began the conversion to biodynamics and his wines changed radically. The vineyard is awarded the AB and Demeter labels, demonstrating his environmentally friendly work. Thus, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Muscat and Pinot Noir now grow in the middle of wildflowers.
Made from 100% Pinot Gris, it showcases a bright straw-yellow. Aromas of peach, almond, butter, bergamot and white flowers. Supple and off-dry, displaying a glyceral texture to the peach and apple flavors. Finishes fresh and sappy.
