The vineyards of the ‘Château Ollwiller’ cover an area of 27 hectares with a south-east and south exposure, allowing for a high level of sunshine.
The fine-grained soil in this terroir produces very powerful and sublime wines. Alongside their employees, managing director Thomas Mack and head wine maker Mathieu Kauffmann want to significantly increase the quality. “We’re initially focusing on Riesling, sparkling wine and rosé wine, and maybe red wine as a second step,” says Thomas Mack. “We want to be in the top ten of the great Rieslings in Alsace.” Mathieu Kauffmann is thinking even further ahead: “My goal is to create an Ollwiller Crémant of the highest quality, outside of Champagne.” The cellar master says that he has always achieved his goals.
“Ollwiller is a Franco-German project which dissolves borders.”
