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. They were innkeepers or coopers as well as ‘gourmets’, the old name given to wine merchants, which afforded them an important status in the local community.
In 1748, winegrower and blacksmith Jean-Georges Lorentz was the first to settle in Bergheim, which later became the heart of our Domaine.
His son, Pierre Lorentz, was married to the youngest daughter of the Mayor of the time (Nicolas Schmitt). Generations passed with the birth of Jacques Lorentz in 1798 and Charles Lorentz in 1836. This same year, Maison Lorentz was founded in the commune of Bergheim. Today, Georges Lorentz has the honour of managing the estate, seven generations later.
A delicate bouquet that exhales white flower, honey, melon and citrus aromas. The mouth is lively, dry, pleasant and perfectly balanced with well-integrated acidity and a touch of minerality.
Food Matches: Matches very well with appetizers, fish and shellfish, as well as with white meat.
