Gérard’s Neumeyer’s two children Jérôme and Marie run the estate, currently working 16 hectares of vineyards. These are focused on the hillsides comprising the Grand Cru Bruderthal vineyard just outside the town of Molsheim in the north of the Alsace region (north of Bas-Rhin).
Grand Cru Bruderthal has been renowned since 1316 for the impressive quality of its
wines, which, at that time, adorned the tables of the wealthy and powerful. The Bruderthal vineyard benefits from an exceptional aspect as well as a fabulous geological and topographical profile enabling it to produce exceptional vines. With a south-westerly orientation, the vineyard basks in an ideal amount of sunlight whilst the excellent marly-limestone soil provides a perfect environment for the vines’ roots. With a history that dates back many genations, the Neumeyer family domaine use their accumulated knowledge in order to cultivate their land with utmost care and understanding thereby coaxing out its finest expressions. All the while they strive to protect the environment through the principles of organic viticulture. For the top cuvées, such as the Grands Crus, a diligent hand harvest throughout the vineyard is itself preceded by a rigorous green harvest in order to limit the production and encourage flavour intensity in the finished wines.
