Our History

OUR PAST REVEALS OUR FUTURE
Start 1860

The beginning

It all began in 1860, when Jean Baptiste, a young owner of vines, forests and orchards, began to make wine and sell it. A story is born and is simply passed on from father to son.

1900 – 1944

development

At the start of the 20th century, Charles & Agathe sensed the tourist impact of the wine route, they left the center of the village to buy a house on the edge of it. The constant passage makes it possible to acquire customers, attracted by the beauty of the places and buy wines, at a time when polyculture is still the rule.

… 1978

A PRECURSOR

After having assumed the transition from bottling all the vines to the property, he was one of the first to grass the vines before 50’s, a revolutionary attitude at the time and an approach that was part of a logic of organic culture. Then, he was one of the five historic Alsatian producers to launch the Crémant d’Alsace appellation in 1974. He was also the first to plant plots of Chardonnay for an exclusive production in AOC Crémant d´Alsace.

1945 …

EVERYTHING SPEED UP IN THE LATE 1940s

Jean Huttard brand is created and the vineyard restructured. Jean Jacques spends himself tirelessly to establish a viable wine-growing company and is becoming a pioneer in many respects.

1979 …

independent winegrower

In the 1980s, Jean Claude and Martine took over. They work 8 hectares of vines and become “Independent Winegrowers” (we work our vines, grow our wines and only sell our own production). Taking up his father’s quality policy, Jean Claude voluntarily limits yields.

… 2014

Micro-cuvées

We mainly produce micro-cuvées from specific area, where the richness of the terroir, the rigor of the winegrower lead to the creation of great wines: lieu-dit Lerchenberg, lieu-dit Burgreben – Grand Cru Sonnenglanz, Grand Cru Mandelberg, Grand Cru Schoenenbourg .

Martine is developing wine tourism in domain and the winefair across France.
