Perpetuating six hundred years of winemaking tradition, a group of renowned winegrowers from Alsace has decided to restore the Historic Cellars of the Hospices de Strasbourg, in order to mature there a prestigious selection of wines from their various vineyards. Each wine is chosen as representative of its variety, its area of production and its appellation. For each vintage, a tasting is made to select the most promising wines to be admitted in these cellars, where they are cared for with passionate dedication. All the winegrowers’ talent finds its expression in these exceptional wines, which are entrusted to an expert oenologist, specialised in the art of vinification and ageing in tuns.
The ideal conditions offered by the magnificent vaults allow each wine to develop its great personality. After several months of loving care, a final tasting leads to the moment for bottling, which takes place in situ: the crowning moment in a search for faultless wines which required months of tireless effort. The Historic Cellars of the Hospices de Strasbourg is an embassy for Alsace wishes the European capital; the symbol of tradition behind the region’s best wines, the expertise of generations, and the generosity, diversity and beauty of Alsace. The Cave de Beblenheim, partner in this renovation, is proud to market three outstanding wines.
