Skip a head a few generations to the 1970s where René Fleith establishes 4 hectares of vines and a wine estate and began to sell his wines. Today, Vincent Fleith, looks after wine production at the estate. He took some time to work in the wine industries of California, Australia and Beaujolais and returned home to Alsace to run the now 9 hectare estate. He practices biodynamic viticulture and is a member of the association Vignes Vivantes. His commitment producing authentic wines that express terroir is evident in each sip.
