The Gisselbrecht family have been producing wine in Alsace for over 300 hundred years. They originally sold their wines to négociants, until in 1936 Willy Gisselbrecht branched out as an independent winemaker/merchant, becoming one of the first to bottle his own wines.
Today the company he founded is operated from Dambach-la-Ville by his grandsons, Philippe and Claude, where the company owns 17 hectares of some of Alsace’s finest vineyard sites. The family also own significant parcels in the Grand Cru Frankstein, and buy fruit from the Grand Cru Muenchberg and from a select group of growers.
The brothers introduced a quality charter that rewards growers by paying above-market rates. In return, they insist that yields are kept lower than the authorised AC limit and that best vineyard management practises are maintained. In the winery, traditional methods acquired over generations are combined with modern, temperature-controlled technology to produce Gisselbrecht’s stunning range of offerings, a selection held in high regard around the globe.
