Dirler-Cade

This family-owned estate, founded in 1871, is located in the small village of Bergholtz, in the south of the Alsace region close to the towns of Guebwiller and Mulhouse. Southern Alsace is famous for its sandstone and its dry climate which can give the wines added weight and personality. The Dirler-Cadé domaine comprises some 18 hectares, all of which since 1998 have been farmed organically. Impressively, almost half of the holdings are in the following grand cru vineyards: Saering, Spiegel, Kessler and Kitterlé. The Dirler-Cadés also have a number of single-vineyard sites (lieux-dits). Riesling, gewurztraminer and pinot gris together account for the majority of plantings.

The outstanding wines produced here are tightly-structured with a vein of minerality, less rich and sweet than they used to be, and, in the case of riesling and muscat, bone-dry. Two generations are currently involved in the running of the domaine. In charge is fifth-generation Jean Dirler, who married Ludivine Hell-Cadé, thus creating the domaine in its current form.
