The Durrmann family make wine from their old family house in the middle of Andlau, a beautiful village nestled on the first slopes of the Vosges mountains south-west of Strasbourg. The family are true eco warriors only having electric cars and using solar energy for hot water and heating. Father André was among the first wave of organic winemakers in Alsace, converting in 1998, and son Yann has then taken this a step further applying a natural, minimal intervention approach in the cellar.

Riesling from the Durrmman's steep Rabari parcel planted over schist. Pressed over 10 hours to stainless steel and fermented and aged in tank, this is a really driving, mineral Riesling bottled without sulphur.
