About the winery:
The domain is located in the town of Wettolsheim, near Colmar in Alsace. The Barmès family (mother Geneviève with son Maxime and daughter Sophie) makes their particularly distinctive wines here completely biodynamically. François and his wife Geneviève founded the company in 1985, constantly looking for the quality and originality of their terroirs. Unfortunately, François passed away in 2011 after a fatal accident. Meanwhile, their extremely talented son Maxime is responsible for the making process.
In line with the biodynamic method, they do not add any synthetic or chemical product, they use homemade compost from plant extracts, do not do chaptalization (= add sugar to the must) and do not add extra enzymes and yeasts. So 100% pure nature! This way of farming, the importance the family attaches to human values, (com-)passion and precision all contribute to the success of these unique wines.
