Domaine Bott Frères

DESCRIPTION

The Bott Frères Alsace wines are the product of knowledge acquired over nearly two centuries, an exceptional terroir, high quality grape varieties, and the Ribeauvillé microclimate. Vintners from father to son, three generations are united today to maintain and to enrich the know-how of the Bott family for the future. Tradition and quality are the rule; ensuring the creation of wines with a very high level of quality

The family’s plots are mainly located in Ribeauvillé, in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards, to obtain the best possible expression of this exceptional terroir in our wines. The property was established by Philippe Louis BOTT (1800-1855), the son of a brewer and an impassioned winegrower. He began making wines in 1835, while continuing his brewery activity, as his forefathers had done before him.

At Bott Frères, sustainable agriculture and a respect for bio diversity have always been part of our family values. Traditional techniques as well as new technology are employed for successful wine-making. Only a terroir that is loved and respected can produce exceptional wines. The Bott family does not manufacture wine, but cultivates it. The greatest care is given to the grape, all the way from the ground to the glass.
