Established in 1770, the Binner estate is among the environmentally conscious producers in Alsace that strive to push the technical limits of winemaking while remaining respectful of the nature that surrounds them. Winemaker Christian Binner vinifies without any added sulfur, even at bottling, and uses native yeast for fermentation. The quality of his wines has cemented a reputation as one of the most renowned natural winemakers in Alsace. In 2012, he added a winery space built into the earth with a soil roof for natural temperature control which he says has greatly improved the quality of his wines adding stability and resilience while still forgoing the use of sulfur, which is rather difficult to achieve with white wines. A blend of pinot gris, riesling, muscat, and gewürztraminer, this wine is everything you want in an Alsace white. It is abundantly aromatic of stone fruits, flowers, and minerality, with the fruit flavors subtle on the palate with the minerality at the forefront. It has a wonderful roundness with just the right amount of acidity…a beautifully balanced wine. Certified organic, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
