Domaine Marcel Deiss is a winery located in Bergheim, in the Alsace wine region of France. The winery was founded in 1947 by Marcel Deiss, and is now run by his son, Jean-Michel Deiss. The philosophy of the winery is based on the concept of terroir, with a focus on producing wines that reflect the unique characteristics of the soil and the environment in which they are grown.
The vineyards of Domaine Marcel Deiss cover around 27 hectares, and are spread across several different appellations, including Alsace Grand Cru, Alsace AOC, and Vin de France. The winery produces a range of different wines, including white, red, and rosé wines, as well as sparkling wines.
One of the unique aspects of the winemaking philosophy at Domaine Marcel Deiss is the use of field blends. Rather than separating grape varieties into different vineyards, the winery often plants them together in the same vineyard, allowing the grapes to grow and ripen together. This is said to produce wines that are more complex and expressive, with a greater sense of place.
The winery is also known for its commitment to organic and biodynamic viticulture, and has been certified biodynamic since 2002. The vineyards are worked by hand, and the winemaking is carried out using traditional methods, with a focus on minimal intervention to allow the grapes and terroir to express themselves fully. Overall, Domaine Marcel Deiss is recognized as one of the leading producers in Alsace, and its wines are highly sought after by wine lovers and collectors around the world.
