The product of an alliance between two winegrowing families, Domaine Barmès-Buecher was created in 1985 following the union of Geneviève Buecher and François Barmès. Domaine Barmès-Buecher is located in the commune of Wettolsheim in Alsace, a few kilometers from Colmar. Today, the three new owners, Maxime Barmès and his sister Sophie, are continuing the work begun some thirty years ago. They work rigorously to preserve the reputation of the estate's wines, using biodynamic methods with strict monitoring of the vines and cellars.

Location of Domaine Barmès-Buecher

Located 5 km south-west of Colmar, the estate has been biodynamically farmed since 1998 (certification in 2001). It now comprises 7 terroirs, including 3 Grands Crus. It extends over almost 17 hectares of vines, on lieux-dits and Grands Crus, with a grape variety that reflects Alsace's heritage and diversity: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Auxerrois, Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Muscat Blanc à petits grains and Gewurztraminer. The vineyards are planted in a variety of parcels. The estate's soils are essentially marl-limestone. The Domaine Barmès-Buecher parcels include 3 Grands Crus: Grand Cru de Wettolsheim, Grand Cru de Wintzenheim and Grand Cru d'Eguisheim. Maxime and Sophie, who now run Domaine Barmès-Buecher, take the same care in the vineyard as they do in the cellar, with the central idea of not altering the balance and signature of the terroir.

Domaine Barmès-Buecher wines

At Domaine Barmès-Buecher, we prefer gravity-fed vinification, use indigenous yeasts, follow the lunar calendar in the cellar too, and press gently. Fermentation takes place on lees and is particularly long, lasting up to 18 months. The wine may be aged in foudre, barrique or stainless steel vats. We use as few inputs as possible, as little sulfur as possible, and filter very lightly.
