This is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace.
Founded by Bruno & Renee Sorg in 1965, with the wines now being made by their son Francois, this is a tiny producer who produces a range of wines of staggering quality – that they remain virtually unknown can only be due to the fact the family are not natural self-publicists, and production is tiny.
Bruno spent 30 years secretly buying parcels of land and he and his son Francois realised a dream ten years ago with the final purchase of a plot of steep garrigue in the heart of the Grand Cru Pfersigberg. This great vineyard is planted with Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris and the fruit was used for the first time in 2004.
In 2004 Francois Sorg built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. Francois says he now has time to think instead of climbing up and down ladders and stairs. The wines were always first division but now they have that extra dimension.
