Ammerschwihr is indeed a picturesque village located a few kilometers northwest of Colmar in the Alsace region. It holds a significant place in the history of Alsace vineyards and is today one of the most important wine villages in the region, benefiting from an excellent location between the Wineck Castle and the Schlossberg Castle.
The Schoech winery is a family-owned business that spans 18 hectares of some of the finest terroirs in Wettolsheim and the surrounding villages, including the prestigious grand crus of Steingrubler and Hengst.
Since 1650, the Maurice SCHOECH estate has been the heir to a long family tradition in the wine industry. Ancestors who were coopers, nurserymen, wine brokers, and winegrowers have passed down their expertise and passion for vineyards and wine.
Located in the heart of the Alsace vineyard, in Ammerschwihr, the estate is primarily situated on the hillsides and is managed using organic farming practices by Sébastien and Jean Léon SCHOECH.
The name of the estate is linked to Maurice Schoech, the father of Sébastien and Jean Léon. He played a crucial role in the development of the estate and continues to be involved in the vineyard work today, especially in the reconstruction of dry stone walls.
The entire vineyard has been in organic farming since the 2014 vintage. This approach to working the vines in harmony with nature, as it was practiced 100 years ago, requires a great deal of observation.
