In the village of Bergheim in Alsace is where the Deiss domaine lies. Jean-Michel Deiss inherited the Schoenenbourg vineyard, which was planted to several grape varieties instead of one. Using this to his advantage, he sought to vinify his wines as blends, going against the norm of the region at the time. Taking the blending style in his stride, every one of his top vineyards were then planted to this style of coplanting. The Deiss expression of terroir is unparalleled in the region when reinforced with the usage of biodynamic farming and natural winemaking. Mathieu has now joined his father. They are not only leaders in the region, but do not conform to trends.
This is a serious throwback to the olden days of “coplanting” several varieties in the same vineyard. This comes from younger vine parcels in Bergheim of coplanting. The wine ages in steel for twelve months before release.
