“We are operating in viniculture for eight generations. It is important for us to maintain our culture, Savoir-Faire, the nature and our soil. We want to ensure that that topic continues. Sustainability is a worldwide goal which is reached more easily and quicker in exchange with internatinal colleagues than alone – and FAIR N’GREEN is the right system to reach it. The approach is innovative, all pillars of sustainability are considered and measured. Each part of the value chain is considered: the wine grower, the staff, the customer and most of all the nature! Vive FAIR’N GREEN” – Mélanie Pfister, winer maker in 8th generation
Domaine Pfister is an old, family run winery from Dahlenheim, Alsace, France. It is run today by the family, in todays 8th generation, since 1780. Some of todays Domaine Pfisters vineyards date back as far as 884, when they were first mentioned by the abbey Saint-Michel de Honau. About a millenium later, in 1985, the vineyard Scharrachberg was classified as Grand Cru.
The Grand Cru Engelberg is located at the southern slopes of Scharrachberg, on an altitude between 250 and 300 meters above sealevel. The vineyard is devided into two seperate parts by an abandoned limestone quarry. The majority of the vineyards are located in the eastern part of the Grand Cru area, where the soil is calcareous, shallow and contains marl as well as arenite.
