Bernhart

The purchase of vineyards in Wissembourg around 1900 laid the cornerstone for today’s estate, and accounts for why two-thirds of its vines are located in Alsace. Willi Bernhart dared to take the plunge into self-employment when he started to bottle his own wines in 1971. Today’s proprietors, Sabine and Gerd Bernhart, are supported by the older generation and a young team of employees. The rich, chalky soils yield German Pinotts that are international in style, and usually quite dry. They strive to produce individual wines with an appealing structure and character. The whites are an expression of pure fruit, fresh, lively, and elegant, with a minerally spiciness; the reds, soft and round, with an elegant tannic structure and a long finish.
