In 1896 the Willm family founded the Willm Estate in Barr, at the foot of the majestic Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru vineyard. Our vineyard is in the Barr region in northern Alsace, shielded by the Vosges which protect it from most of the rain coming from the west and creating a very sunny micro-climate. Historical, The Barr vines are mentioned for the first time in an 8th century document from the Fulda Abbey in Germany. The soils are for the most part granitic and clay-calcareous which confer freshness and finesse to the wines. The vineyard practises integrated farming which means finding the perfect balance between the vines, the soils and the climate, respecting nature and the environment.
