Below is a brief excerpt reviewing the Salon Tasting at Schiller‘s Home that was open to GWS members:
The German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter) organized a Domaine Weinbach tasting. It took place at our home and was limited to 16 people in order to fit around our large round table. Incoming GWS Secretary Joseph Aguiar was the event coordinator. Annette Schiller provided an overview on the wines of Alsace as well as some background information on Domaine Weinbach.To read the extensive review of the event please follow the link to Christian Schiller’s outstanding blog.
Domaine Weinbach comprises 27 hectares. Although all the bottles of Domaine Weinbach bear the name of the Clos des Capucins, only a small number originate from the Clos itself. The rest come from the Faller’s other holdings, including in their Grand Cru sites. Domaine Weinbach wines also come from vineyards they have leased and cultivate themselves.
