Jean-Marie Bechtold is the fourth generation to steward this traditional domaine. He began working with his father in 1980 and
took the reins in 1995. The estate is located in Kirchheim, west of Strasbourg in the slopes of the “Couronne d’Or”, a region with
2000 years of viticultural history. Bechtold controls 12 hectares of vineyards and is the only organic grower in the village ( Jean-Marie
Bechtold is currently making the conversion to biodynamic viticulture) and one of the few to harvest by hand. The estate provides
the best examples of five of the Bas-Rhin's greatest vineyards (two of which are calssified grand cru): The Sussenberg, Engelberg, Sil- berberg, Steinklotz, and Obere Hund. The domaine’s wines have a silky structure without being soft and they are complex without
being overwhelming; they offer classic examples of the flavor and structure that defines this special terroir: cool, refined, dignified.
