Valentin Zusslin Wine Estate was created in 1691 by Mr. Jodocus CISLE in the small village of Orschwihr in Alsace. The village is surrounded by the slopes of the Bollenberg, of the Clos Liebenberg and of the Grand Cru Pfingstberg. Today, the winery is run by brother and sister Jean-Paul & Marie Zusslin. For almost 20 years (since 1997) the whole winery has been converted to biodynamic viticulture. These methods, the fact that most of the work is done by hand in the vineyard and at the cellar, our non-intrusive methods of vinification and the love we have for our terroirs help us to seek the purest and most beautiful expression of our soils and cultivated varieties. We are putting a lot of efforts in respecting and helping the biodiversity to grow and live in our vineyard. The biodynamic culture is a big help to reach that goal. We are also doing many other things : for example, in the Clos Liebenberg we have a flock of sheep that grazes there all winter long, and some bee hives during the summer. We are also working a part of the vineyard with Sesame, our own horse, since 2012. We are doing our best not to interfer in the natural process of fermentation and growing of the wines. We believe that interfering too much would take away from the wine not only its inner substance coming from the crops and the land, but also the forces and vitality wich make great wines worth drinking !
