Wine growers since 1574, today, 3 generations manage the Dopff’s estate. With more than 70 hectares of productive vineyard, Dopff ‘Au Moulin’ has become the most important domain in the heart of the best wine region.

It is mainly situated around the little town of Riquewihr, on the south-facing slopes of the Schoenenbourg.

When wine-merchants were called ‘gourmets’. http://www.dopff-au-moulin.fr/domaine.php?lg=en

It was in the XVIIth century that Jean-Daniel Dopff a minister’s son, settled in Riquewihr as master-baker and innkeeper under the sign of The Stag. His son, Balthazard-Georges, born in Riquewihr in 1667, became master cooper and was thus the first to associate the name of Dopff with of the wine professions.

Four generations of Dopff succeeded each other in this line until Jean Dopff, two centuries later, took up the profession of ‘gourmet’, that is to say a wine merchant under oath.

His son Jean Gustave took over the job, in this turn and dedicated himself to the task of building up the family domain.

The Dopff enterprise was thus founded, and its history, closely linked to that of Riquewihr and its vineyards, was just beginning.

Today, 3 generations manage the Dopff’s estate: Pierre Dopff, the Managing Director, his son Pierre-Etienne, General Manager, and Etienne-Arnaud, Logistic and Development Manager, who has just been appointed at the beginning of the 1998 harvest.

At the heart of the great wine country, the most beautiful domain in Alsace.

From the start, the Dopff family has known how to preserve their first vocation: above all to be wine growers.

It is for that reason that they have devoted themselves to improving and extending the family domain.

Thus with more than 70 hectares of productive vineyard, Dopff ‘Au moulin’ has become the most important domain in the heart of the best wine region.

It is mainly situated around the little town of Riwuewihr, on the south-facing slopes of the Schoenenbourg (‘Belle côte’), excellent Riesling country. It has also extended towards Hunawihr, Mittelwihr, the Hardt of Colmar and as far as the Brand of Turckheim.

And so the dream of eleven generations of the Dopff family has come true: to make their business one of the foremost in Alsace.

They were helped in this by a tradition which, since 1574, prohibits the cultivation of anything but top quality wines on the territory of Riquewihr, on pain of a heavy fine.

The ‘inventors’ of Crémant d’Alsace.

Always on the look-out for new ideas, Julien Dopff attended, at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900, a practical demonstration of the ‘Champenoise method’. This was the starting point of a, great idea: to experiment on Alsace wine, to produce a second fermentation in the bottle.

After a two-year training period at Epernay to get accustomed to the peculiarities of champagne, Julien Dopff applied the same method to the Alsace wines which succeeded so well with Champagne.

All the right conditions being united – favourable climate, good soil and the natural sparkle of the Pinot Blanc – it was a great success… and the beginning of the wonderful adventure of Crémant d’Alsace which, today, enjoys such a well earned popularity.

Best served at 8-10⁰C, it works perfectly as an accompaniment to seafood and vegetable-based dishes. Other styles: Extra Dry Prosecco (12-17 g/l of sugar) The most traditional type of Prosecco.

Bastia Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti 2019

Straw yellow in colour with the delicate delicate perlage typical of Frizzante wines. This wine is a jump into the history of Prosecco, when locals used to call it in the local dialect "el vin col fondo” - "the wine with sediment". This is in fact a traditional Colfondo Frizzante wine, with in-bottle fermentation and storage on the yeast lees. Without filtering or clarification, this wine takes on unique and unmistakable features, and its complexity is overwhelming and fascinating. If shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy; the smell is characterised by yeasty notes, crust of bread and yellow ripe fruit; the taste is bone-dry and pleasantly sapid. Bastia winery is located in the heart of Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG appellation. With the "Capo degli Onesti" they wanted to celebrate Prosecco, its history and tradition; for this reason they decided to label this wine as "Vino Frizzante Bianco", just like their grandparents used to do years and years ago.
