Domaine Weinbach is a family-owned winery located in the heart of Alsace, France. The estate has a rich history dating back to the 17th century when it was founded by Capuchin monks. Today, the winery is run by the Faller family, who have been producing exceptional wines for generations.

The Pinot Gris - Cuvée Sainte Catherine is one of the winery's most popular wines. It is made from grapes grown in the Clos des Capucins vineyard, which is located on a steep slope overlooking the town of Kaysersberg. The vineyard has a unique microclimate that allows the grapes to ripen slowly and develop complex flavors.

The wine is made using traditional methods, with the grapes being hand-harvested and carefully sorted before being pressed. The juice is then fermented in oak barrels, which gives the wine a rich, creamy texture and a subtle hint of oak. The wine is aged for several months before being bottled, allowing it to develop its full flavor and complexity.

The Pinot Gris - Cuvée Sainte Catherine is a full-bodied wine with a rich, golden color. It has a complex aroma of ripe fruit, honey, and spice, with a hint of minerality. On the palate, the wine is rich and creamy, with flavors of ripe peach, apricot, and honey. It has a long, lingering finish with a subtle hint of oak.

This wine is perfect for pairing with rich, flavorful dishes such as foie gras, roasted pork, or spicy Asian cuisine. It is also delicious on its own as an aperitif or after-dinner drink.

The slightest notes of vanilla accent the pear-fruited nose that also carries hints of saffron. The palate is defined but balanced. Fruit concentration partners with gentle richness and spice, with the necessary counterbalance of citrus pith and zest. Lovely now, this elegant wine will develop.

Domaine Weinbach is situated at the foot of the Schlossberg hill in Alsace and is named after a small stream, ‘Wine Brook’, that runs through the Estate. Founded in 1612 by Capuchin monks and then taken over by the Faller brothers in 1898, it is now in the hands of Catherine Faller and her son Théo who produce some of the country’s finest wines.

I visit a lot of wine estates, but this is one visit I will remember for a long time. Weinbach, based in Kientzheim, is one of the star domaines of Alsace.Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com

Domaine Weinbach farms biodynamically and hand harvest all of the crop with a view to quality over quantity. Each vineyard has its own specific terroir, which along with the other unique characteristics of grape and vintage, shimmer through these elegant and sophisticated wines thanks to their ageing in large old oak foudres.

Catherine and Théo grow a variety of grapes within the estate - Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner - but it is Riesling that is the king of Alsace wine and at the hearts of the Faller family. The Domaine owns 8 hectares of Riesling vineyards and they were among the first in Alsace to receive Grand Cru status in 1975.

On a base of granite rocks, the soils are brown, slightly acidic, and pebbly. The Schlossberg’s steep, south-facing slopes ensure exposure to optimal sunshine. The soils are very well drained and warm up very rapidly producing delicate fruit with a bouquet of great finesse.

I have already nailed my colours to the mast by listing Domaine Weinbach in my 100 Most Iconic Wine Estates book. I am always absolutely mesmerised by the thrilling wines from this Domaine.” Matthew Jukes
