Laurent Barth comes from the village of Bennwhir just north of Colmar in the famous wine growing region of Alsace. Before he made his excellent white wine at home, he made wine in many countries internationally, including South Africa, Lebanon, and California. He started making wine in 1999 when he had taken over his father’s estate, which then were made into cooperative wines, but did not bottle his own wine until 2004 when his coop contract expired. His wines are all certified organic.
On each label is the shape of a leaf; the leaf consists of the sentence, “the spirit of wine” written in multiple languages, except for English. The vines are 25-60 years old from clay and limestone soils. The wine is aged in larger oak barrels and a bit in stainless steel for a wine with concentration and freshness.
