Domaine Stentz-Buecher is to be found in the small village of Wettolsheim, close to Colmar, and is in the middle of the Alsace Wine Route.
The winery has 13 hectares of vines, all of which are organically certified and cultivated with the utmost respect and love of the surrounding environment. The winery’s philosophy is to let the vines develop and the wine age as naturally as possible, with the minimum of interference.
All the different types of Alsace wines are made at Domaine Stentz-Buecher, and as with many of the region’s winemakers, the winery’s vineyards are scattered around in Wettolsheim and the terroir of neighbouring villages. One of the main plots can be found in the excellent Rosenberg vineyard, and it is here that your adopted vines are located. The rich clay limestone soil helps produce intense, flowery wines that last on the palate.
Domaine Stentz-Buecher’s wines regularly feature in the main French wine guides such as the renowned French wine magazine La Revue du Vin de France, where the winery saw their Gewurztraminer Rosenberg selected as one of the best wines of the 2016 vintage. “A creamy sensation develops on the palate for this refined wine. Notes of guava and papaya develop during the long finish, accompanied by a noble bitter taste.” The 2018 Bettane+Desseauve wine guide chose three 2015 wines. The Gewurztraminer Hengst scored 16/20, the Pinot Gris Pfersigberg 14/20 and the Muscat Rosenberg was rated 14/20.
