Our historical enclosed plot stretches over 5 hectares, protected by the ancient walls of the Capuchin monastery. It is quoted as of the year 890AD, when the Empress Richarde presented it to the Abbey of Etival, who then presented a part to the Order of Capuchin Friars – early XVIIth century.
Our historical monopole vineyard, planted with all Alsatian grape varieties, with a sand silt soil on granite pebbles. Clos des Capucins is an early-ripening terroir producing fruit-forward wines.
The vines which are planted inside the Clos des Capucins and in surrounding vineyards of the same nature include all Alsatian varieties. They are particularly at the bottom of our Riesling Cuvée Théo, Gewurztraminer Cuvée Théo, Pinot Gris Clos des Capucins and Pinot Noir Clos des Capucins.
