Description

Details of wine

Talking about the Rolly Gassmann winery means getting into the biodynamic way of which Pierre has always been a pioneer. We are in Alsace known to all wine lovers for the production of wines with great personality and quality.

Riesling, Pinot Bianco and Gewurztraminer find here the best conditions to express all the potential of each grape variety.

Focusing on biodynamic cultivation, the winery bans any chemical element in favor of the use of natural compounds that preserve all the biodiversity present in the territory.

Gerwuztraminer is one of the most elegant white grape varieties and the one produced by Rolly Gassman impresses with its powerful structure, richness and longevity.

The grapes are harvested by hand, fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts, stopping naturally.
After 11 months it will be bottled and left to rest until it is ready for marketing.

A white man who must never miss in the cellar, much loved by the fairer sex.

Name: Rolly Gassmann
Start-up year: 1611
Cultivated hectares: 50
Address: 1 Rue de l'Église - Rorschwihr (France)

Rolly Gassmann is based in the small village of Rorschwirhr, in the northernmost part of the Upper Rhine Department in Alsace. The property, of about 50 hectares of vineyards, divided between the communes of Rorschwirhr and Bergheim, allows you to act on a unique variety of soils: clay, sand, limestone and granite alternate in this area creating wines with a strong and decisive character. The winery is now run by Marie-Thérèse, Loius and their son Pierre Gassmann. The production is about 300000 bottles per year, only 20% of which are destined for export outside France. The wines are powerful, precise, played on the difficult ridge of a vibrant acidity and sweetness always calibrated: Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer by Rolly-Gassmann give pure enjoyment especially to those who have the patience to wait for the legendary ability to evolve in the bottle.
