The two sons of the Rieflé family, Thomas and Paul, joined the estate in 2010. Sensitive to humanist and civic values, they decided to apply Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's quote: "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children". In this spirit of respect for the earth, they have converted the entire vineyard to organic farming.
The vineyard is now in organic farming.
The roots of the Rieflé family go deep into the history and culture of the Rhine. Its identity is nourished by the spirit of the beautiful winegrowers' house built in Pfaffenheim in 1609, right next to the magnificent church with its 13th century choir, a jewel of Romanesque architecture.
The first pages of the contemporary history were written by Joseph Rieflé and his wife Madeleine Freytag. From the 1980s onwards, Annick and Jean-Claude Rieflé seized the opportunities offered by globalization to introduce Alsace wines to new consumers.
The two sons of the Rieflé family - Thomas and Paul - joined the estate in 2010. The latter, sensitive to humanist and civic values, have decided to apply the famous quote of Saint-Exupéry: "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children". In this spirit of respect for the earth, they have therefore converted the entire vineyard to Organic Agriculture.
Being a winegrower in the 21st century means knowing how to place the human being and precision at the centre of the creation of great wines. This approach to viticulture is a guarantee of sustainability in a globalized world.
The vineyard is fragmented into more than 70 plots of land, each treated on a case-by-case basis, according to their respective characteristics. The aim is to create a link between each cuvée and its terroir. To achieve this, the fragile balance of the soil must be preserved by alternating ploughing, natural grassing and composting.
