Gustave Lorentz

Who?

The first mention of the Lorentz family in the commune of Ribeauvillé dates back to the end of the Thirty Years' War in the second half of the 17th century. By the end of the 19th century, Gustave Lorentz breathed new life into the company by deciding to concentrate only on the winegrowing side of the business. Charles Lorentz senior was born at the turn of the 20th century. As soon as he joined the family business, this visionary strived for excellence by expanding his vineyards on the slopes of Altenberg de Bergheim using only the highest quality grapes in order to offer his customers the finest wines. In 1995, when Georges Lorentz took over the business, the domaine had 32 hectares of owned vineyards, and bought grapes grown in 120 hectares exclusively in the Bergheim area. Aware of his exceptional inheritance, with his team, they continue striving to produce elegant, well-balanced and food-friendly fine wines.

‘The essence of our wines stems from the close relationship between grape variety, terroir & climate.’ George Lorentz - Owner

What?

Georges, conscious of the current and future environmental challenges, decided to create a new working ethos within Maison Gustave Lorentz by converting to organic growing in 2009. All of our wines from own vineyards have been certified organic since the 2012 vintage. 

Where?

From hillside vines to Michellin starred tables: With all the crop nestled on the hillside of Bergheim in the heart of Alsace wine region, 12.8 hectares of which are classified Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim and 1.75 hectares Grand Cru Kanzlerberg it is no wonder where you may stumble across these incredible wines.
