Beck-Hartweg is one of the historic domaines of Alsace which can be traced back to the early 16th century. They’re located in the medieval town of Dambach-la-Ville. At the reins of the estate are Florian and Mathilde,  the 16th generation at the domaine and despite their young age (early 30s) they've already gained a solid reputation as a skilled and progressive representative of the future of Alsace.

Respect and increase of life through the soils and vines have been the main focus for the past two generations, with the return of grass in the vineyards from 1982 and organic certification in 2011. Meticulous vinification and ageing (see wines below) are carried out without the use of any additives including SO2; resulting in profound and vibrant wines carried by the typical saltiness and mineral print of Dambach-la-Ville’s emblematic two-mica granite.

The wine is dry, it is fruit-forward, lush and round with liquorice and Chartreuse-like flavours. Saltiness and stony minerality cut through the wine’s richness to balance it perfectly.
