Biodynamic Estate since 1997. Alsace wine from certified “Organic Farming” grapes controlled by ECOCERT

Located in Orschwihr, halfway between Colmar and Mulhouse, since 1691.East part of France, near the Swiss and German boarders.

The 13 successive generations at the head of the winery always had at heart to produce high quality terroir wines, showcasing the slopes of the Bollenberg, the Clos Liebenberg, the Monopole of the family and the Grand Cru Pfingstberg.

In 1997, the whole winery was converted to biodynamic farming: sustainability, biodiversity development in our vineyards and orchards, creation of a virtuous circle, are our everyday motto.

1691 : after the 30 Years War Jodocus Cislé, a swiss winemaker, founder of the Zusslin Family, settled in Orschwihr with Barbara Vogel a young Alsatian lady. The love story began at that time and the Domaine never moved away.

After WW II : M. Valentin Zusslin 11th generation gave his name as a trade mark and it is still on the labels 80 years later.

1997 : Jean-Marie Zusslin his son converted the whole winery to biodynamic farming.

2000 : Marie & Jean-Paul Zusslin, 13th generation of the Zusslin family take over the winery
Many collaborations have been created with local farmers for the compost for example but also beehives, birdhouses…

2012 : Sesame, our draught horse, arrived at the Winery and started to work with us for various tasks.

2014 : distillation got bigger at the winery with the purchase of an Holstein still.

2020 : development of agroforestry on two of our new plots
