THE QUEST FOR GREAT WINE

The Marcel DEISS estate, located in Bergheim, in the heart of the Ribeauvillé fault field, derives its originality from the assiduous practice of biodynamic viticulture throughout the 32-hectare vineyard, producing low-yield wines obtained by returning to the old Alsatian wine-growing tradition of the Complantation. This art of bringing together in the vineyard plot the grape varieties adapted to the terroir, is the only way to obtain real stability in the personality of each terroir. (both Premier Cru and Grand Cru). To be tasted to convince yourself that a true terroir is always stronger than the grape variety planted.........!

Complantation wines

The concept

Complantation is the art of mixing grape varieties in a terroir. It is the oldest form of viticulture known before the appearance of clones and the depletion of biodiversity. It ensures regular harvests by creating a complex and naturalist ecosystem. Conducted with a real respect for life, our vineyard is planted with the 13 Alsatian grape varieties, driven, harvested and pressed together, vinified with patience and without inputs.

Biodynamy

the respect of the nature

Biodynamics is the most respectful way towards nature, which allows us to express each of our terroirs with a deep originality. It implements the root work of the plant, in an environment free of synthetic products. Let us not forget that the winegrower is not only a poet, but above all a peasant, a man who vibrates and sweats for his country, for his terroir. And that if biodynamics is not all agriculture, it is very difficult to make a real viticulture without biodynamics.
