Background

Domaine André Rohrer is based in Mittelbergheim, in the northern part of Alsace region and is run by young and talented Ludovic Rohrer. The Rohrer family have been making wine in the region for eight generations. Today they farm organically and biodynamically across eight hectares of vines including 0.18 hectares in the Grand Cru Zotzenberg.

The vineyards are spread across three villages: Eichoffen, Mittelbergheim and Barr. Each village produces different varietals and expressions of terroir. Eichoffen produces Riesling and Gewurztraminer on silty sand over marl, Mittelbergheim south of the village with the lieu dit ‘Stein’ is known for powerful Riesling on grey marls and limestone.

The Rohrer family became early adopters of sustainable and organic farming methods.  In the 1960s Ludovic’s grandfather had already stopped the use of herbicide and encouraged herbs to grow between the vines. In the 1980s they ceased the use of all chemical pesticides and finally in 2001, André started the conversion of the Domaine towards organic certification. Today they are certified both organic and biodynamic.

This conversion in the vineyard over the past decades has allowed them to improve the purity of their wines, with the full expression of their terroirs. Perfect expertise of vinification and natural winemaking, these wines are as pure as they come. Organic and biodynamic farming in the vineyard along with hand harvesting is followed in the cellar by traditional ageing in old Alsacian oak foudres." -Mosaique Wines
