ABOUT DOMAINE OSTERTAG
After training in Burgundy, winemaker André Ostertag returned to his family domaine in Epfig and established Domaine Ostertag in 1966. He lowered yields considerably and introduced viticultural and vinification techniques he learned in other regions. In 1997, André began practicing biodynamic viticulture on his 35 acres of vineyards, including his flagship parcel in the Grand Cru Muenchberg. André produces three ranges of wines: the Vins de Fruit, which are expressive of the grape variety; Vins de Pierre, which showcase the terroir; and the Vins de Temps, which highlight overripeness or noble rot and can only come about through waiting. In addition to the Grand Cru Muenchberg, André also produces wines from four lieux- dits: Clos Mathis, Fronholz, Heissenberg and Zellberg.
