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.
