About the Winery:
Domaine Paul Ginglinger is a family-owned estate located in Eguisheim, a fairytale village just south of Colmar with a long winemaking history. The village is dominated by two grand cru vineyards, Eichberg and Pfersigberg.

Founded in 1610, it is now in the hands of Michel Ginglinger, who represents the 13th generation of the family. The domaine covers 12 ha of vineyards planted to pinot noir, pinot blanc, gewürztraminer, riesling, pinot gris, muscat and sylvaner. The average vine age is 30 years.

The production is certified organic. Michel uses no chemical pesticides or mineral fertilisers, preferring to allow the plants to find their own equilibrium. The result is concentrated, balanced wines with great purity and terroir character from village wines up to the Grands Crus.
