BEHIND THE WINES
Jérôme Neumeyer & Marie Neumeyer-Tonner
Jérome Neumeyer is responsible for vineyard management, vinifications and export customers. Marie Neumeyer-Tonner is responsible for domain management, clients in France and suppliers. 4 generations since 1925 have succeeded at the bedside vineyards of the field to get the best.
Reflecting each vintage through the wines, the winemakers combine their efforts, their risk taking and their instincts. Understanding the world of wine means taking into account several interacting factors: the different generations succeeding one another, the geography of the terroirs and the diversity of vintages over the contingencies of the living.
At the Neumeyer estate, well aware of the multi factorial nature of an authentic wine, each element is taken into account and as much as possible optimized. In the vineyard, all the parcels are conducted according to the teachings of organic viticulture, with superficial grazing, weed native flora, manual harvesting with sorting, plot selection and measured yields. In the cellar, gentle pressing, sorting table, minimalist vinification at the discretion of the winemaker, indigenous yeasts and long lees farms are all ways to preserve the potential of the raw material from grapes harvested at maturity. At their local level, the whole family embodying the Neumeyer domain aspires day after day to offer quality wines, representing the best potential of the vineyard located in three Alsatian towns in Molsheim, Mutzig and Avolsheim.
