Notes from the Importer: Catherine comes from a hospitality background, her parents operating restaurants in Alsace since she was young. And whilst Catherine had a keen interest in food and wine, she didn’t want to venture into restaurants. After completing her schooling she undertook viticulture and Oenology studies in Beaune and Dijon, interning with Jean Louis Trepat. Several years later after extensive travel working in France and overseas, Catherine’s return to Alsace was with Chapoutier in 2009, who were establishing themselves in Reichsfeld. This was to provide Catherine with invaluable experience, understanding the terrain, the climate, the cellar conditions and also the chance to befriend other vignerons. 
 
In 2012 she purchased 1.3 hectares and began her own domain. She was assisted by Antoine Kreydenweiss and Lucas Rieffel in the early years. They offered advise and encouragement, with Lucas providing his cellar for Catherine to make her wines until 2015 when she established her own cellar in Bernardville.
