This wine hails from Voegtlinshoffen, which is a medieval German settlement inhabited by goblins and where the temperature never rises above minus twenty. Sorry, what, were we day dreaming again? Ahem.


This wine hails from Voegtlinshoffen and is a curious blend of Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner and Riesling, with the net effect being a delicate wine with a gentle lapping of peach and lemon at the shores of time… sorry, what were we saying?



For about for the past three centuries, the Cattin family has been pursuing its love for Alsace wine. In 1978, Antoine's sons Jacques and Jean-Marie picked up the family baton and a new dynamic developed in the favourable economic situation of the 1980s and 1990s. In 25 years, the two brothers overhauled their winemaking plant entirely. They now have two new winemaking storage facilities, a modern winery and packing equipment along with vineyards that now extend over close to 50 hectares. The two brothers also developed a business involving the purchase of grapes.


The Cattin Family harvests grapes from all over the Alsace appellation area. As a result, it benefits from all the qualities of the region and the combination of its terroirs when it makes its wine. The age of the vines, the grass and working the soil are crucial elements for root development. The Cattin family takes into account these factors when cultivating vines that are now over 60 years old.


The fermentation cellar is built below the presses, so that the juice flows into it by gravity, thus preventing the oxidation of must and protecting the aromas. For that same purpose, the temperature of the fermentation tanks is accurately controlled. Finally, the wine is aged in traditional wooden barrels, some of which are over a hundred years old


A light gold, green-inflected colour, this is an interesting blend. Fresh and fruity with peach and apple notes on the nose, it goes on to reveal a harmonious blend of the grape varieties. Gentle and delicate orchard fruit and floral notes abound, with a balance of freshness and lightness.
