Wettolsheim, Alsace

Domaine Albert Mann is located in Wettolsheim, a small village in the heart of Alsace, 2 km west of Colmar.

The Domaine Albert Mann is the result of the work of two great winegrowing families. The Manns, winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century, and the Barthelmés, the current owners, since 1654.

Today, the two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé, together with their respective wives, Marie-Claire and Marie-Thérèse, run the family estate.
The vineyards cover an area of 23 hectares and are spread over 8 communes, divided into more than one hundred small parcels.

The winery owns 5 Grands Crus, 2 Lieu-dits and 1 Monopole 'Clos de la Faille'.

The variety of landscapes in Alsace, where mountains, hills and plains alternate, is the result of the great diversity of rocks that make up its subsoil. All this contributes to the complexity of the wines. Silica gives liveliness, clay by absorbing minerals brings power, limestone brings opulence and molleux, marls, colder soils, preserve acidity.

The philosophy of the company is to make a wine nourished by the elements of the soil and not by fertilizers. The will of the Domaine is to produce a wine in harmony with nature by practicing an agriculture whose purpose is not to exploit, but to strengthen the vitality of the soil.

'Wine is the memory of the grapes, it is the only way to communicate the taste of the land'. In order for the originality of the place to be best expressed, replanting is practised with mass selections (selection of old plants in order to maintain biodiversity), natural grassing, one row every two. The other row is worked in such a way as to encourage deep rooting of the plants and some terraced plots are worked with horses. The natural composts are 'homemade' and are made to stimulate the soil's bacterial microflora, which are essential for the formation of humus and the assimilation of subsoil minerals.

The harvest is carried out manually, when the skins and seeds reach maturity, in order to respect the grapes that arrive whole in the pneumatic presses.

A slow extraction allows to have clear and healthy musts that do not need any addition of oenological products except for sulphur dioxide, which is however used in minimum doses.

After fermentation for several months, the wines remain in contact with their yeasts, which feed them and at the same time stabilise them naturally. The wines are bottled when they are considered ready and always in the waning moon in order to preserve the fruit. The wines have been certified organic since 2000, but the winery has been run biodynamically since 1997.
