The Boeckel Estate
For 400 years the Boeckel family has had
its roots firmly planted in the terroir of
Mittelbergheim. In 1853, Frédéric
Boeckel, an established winemaker from
the centre of the village founded the
business which is today managed by the
brothers Jean-Daniel and Thomas
Boeckel, who are the fifth generation.
The vineyard extends over 23 hectares
which are owned by the estate, and these
are complemented by the purchase of
grapes from a further 20 hectares of
vines. The majority of the vines are
cultivated according to organic
agricultural principles, and full
certification is currently in progress.

(ahl zas) Just across the Rhine River from Germany, this region in northeastern France produces wines that are unique in many ways. They are made with grapes native to Germany; their bottles are graceful and long-necked; they are relatively inexpensive; and their labels carry the names of the grape as well as the place-name. Alsace Riesling is far drier than its German counterpart, although it has a fruity aroma. IT can be enjoyed young, but a good Riesling will age and improve for ten or more years. Alsace Pinot Blanc is a light-bodied wine that can be extremely dry or medium-dry. Tokay Pinot Gris is made from the Pinot Gris grape, known more famously in Italy as Pinot Grigio. In Alsace these wines are rich, spicy, and full-bodied and a good match with spicy meat dishes as well as sweet and sour flavors. In Alsace, the Gewurztraminer grape makes wines that are spicy, intense, low in acidity and high in alcohol.
