Wine maker notes
The “tradition” line is produced with the grapes brought by our 200 selected vinegrowers. Immediate pressing. Fermentation in controlled temperatures (in order to keep the freshness). Storage on least for four weeks and maturing for six months in tanks before bottling.

Food pairing
Good matching with starters, white fishes, mussels and cold fish pate. Perfect wine on its own or with a buffet.

Producer
The TALE... of a family; This is the Renaissance; the vineyards in Alsace are thriving, especially in Riquewihr. Building is going on everywhere, trade is booming, wine is a precious commodity. The Dopff and the Irion families put their heart and soul into winegrowing. Wines from Riquewihr were famed throughout Europe and as time passed the town became a showcase for the history of wine-growing in Alsace. The TALE... of a pioneer: Rene Dopff took over Dopff & Irion in 1945. He broke away from the old winemaking techniques and looked to the terroir rather than to the grape variety. He decided to divide the vineyard at Chateau de Riquewihr into four estates, which he rechristened with typically French names: Les Murailles, Les Sorcieres, Les Maquisards and Les Amandiers. He opted for clearer labeling, abandoning gothic lettering in favour of a more sober script. These wines, made solely from the four noble grape varieties, expressed the very soul of the terroir. From that day on, each estate was dedicated to a particular variety. Rene Dopff then proceeded to ensure that his wines graced the best tables in France and the world over. He supplied wines to the Palais de l’Elysee, the French President’s residence, and for the launch of the luxury liner, “France”... Dopff & Irion is proud of their inheritance and feel it is their duty to ensure that it continues to thrive and prosper. The love of wine, of their vines, and of the region is an invitation to a voyage through history to be shared and savoured.
