Wineck-Schlossberg takes its name from the 13th century Wineck Castle overlooking the slopes in Kazenthal. This southern-facing grand cru exposes the vines to a steady amount of sunlight throughout the day, where Riesling makes up over 70% of plantings. The unique topsoils of this Grand Cru allow for exceptionally aromatic and vibrant wines that develop with age.




Félix Meyer is a rising star in Alsace and has an evident instinct for his craft. Since taking over in the family domaine in 1992, Félix has already left his mark, modernizing equipment in the winery, developing export sales, and expanding the family’s holdings in many of Alsace’s great vineyard sites, including several grand crus. It’s all about the details at Meyer-Fonné, with an emphasis on tradition and respect for terroir. The winery and family home is in the village of Katzenthal, known for its distinctive granite soils. Racy and elegant; his wines are difficult to resist young but have all the right qualities for the cellar. For aromatic and textural seductiveness, no one in Alsace can top Meyer-Fonné.
