Domaine Weinbach

  • Alsace


The Weinbach estate was founded in 1612 by Capuchin monks who established a monastery at the foot of the majestic Schlossberg mountain, in a setting of vines and roses. Its name Weinbach 'wine stream' is due to the small stream that crosses the property. The estate was sold as national property during the French Revolution and was acquired by the Faller brothers in 1898. Theodore and Jean-Baptiste Faller passed the estate on to their son and nephew Theo, who became an important figure in Alsatian viticulture and a strong advocate for its recognition as an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée. Building on a solid foundation, he strengthened the reputation of the family estate by enlarging and embellishing it and making the wines of Domaine Weinbach one of the most coveted in the region. After his death in 1979, his wife Colette and his daughters Catherine and Laurence took over the management of the estate with the same passion for the great wines of Alsace and the same constant concern for quality. Since 2016, Catherine Faller has been running the estate with her sons Eddy and Théo.
