Our wines are produced in an area of Colmar known as “La Harth”. The wines from this terroir are typically lively, and have a substantial capacity to age.
These characteristics have been recognized at many of the competitions in which we have participated.
Years of experience...
Georges Karcher talks about his wines as if each vintage were a new-born child.
“I studied wine-making at school, but first-hand experience is essential.
It takes several years to really understand a terroir’s character.
My father used to say, “You don’t make the wine in the cellar, you make it outside, in the vineyard.”
And there can be no doubt that all the stages before the harvests are essential if one is to obtain good quality grapes, and from them, an exceptional wine.
Georges has long been committed to sustainable farming: treatments of the vines are carefully controlled, and grass is grown between the rows.
The objective is to let the terroir express its full potential in the form of full-flavoured, elegant, distinguished wines.
