The Cave de Ribeauvillé is the oldest Coop in France, established in 1885 and has always had a simple philosophy of taking the entire harvest from each member, and paying them fairly, and with only 38 growers everyone involved is serious about creating quality wine. Hand harvesting allows a strict selection process of the best grapes that are then transported in small wagons to the press, without any pumping or additional handling. The juices flow into the vats below by employing gravity. This method, unique in Alsace, enables all of the aromatic virtues of each varietal to be preserved. The wines express all the richness and diversity of the Alsatian soils. They are pure and honest wines, with nice freshness and aromatic intensity.The selection are all 100% organic.
