Description

Details of wine

Alsace has always been a land of excellent wine production characterized by a strong personality and great quality. In this region we find the Rolly Gassman winery famous for its biodynamic approach and for the creation of labels with great balance.

The philosophy pursued is to intervene as little as possible on the life cycle of the grapes, using natural products that respect the biodiversity present in the area.

We are talking about a pioneering winery in biodynamics that produces Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer of the highest quality and great aging potential.

Riesling is produced from grapes grown in several vineyards, harvested by hand and gently pressed. This non-invasive processing guarantees wines that maintain all the qualities of the territory unchanged.

One of the best Alsatian Rieslings, elegant and balanced, a bottle for lovers of the genre.

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.
