Family of winegrowers from father to son for five generations in Wolxheim le Canal, we produce the full range of the seven grape varieties of Alsace, and authentic wines to which we bring the most attentive care. Our domain is certified high environmental value level 3 (HVE).
In France, High Environmental Value (HVE) is the highest of three levels of environmental certification for farms.
From the 1970s, Charles Dischler moved towards monoculture and chose the culture of the vine. In order to enlarge the wine estate, he gradually bought several plots across the vineyards of Wolxheim, Dahlenheim and Molsheim and joined the union of independent winegrowers.
His passion for his job, he transmitted it to his son André, current manager of the wine estate. In 2007, he was joined by his wife Nathalie, and to date, they operate 9.50 hectares of vines with a total of 18 plots, some of which are located in the place called Rothstein, the Carrières Royales, the Grand Cru Altenberg de Wolxheim .
Several terroirs make up our vineyard, each bringing its typicality to the 7 grape varieties grown with respect for the vine. (Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Auxerrois and Pinot Blanc, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer)
André and Nathalie Dischler practice a natural culture of the vine and favor prevention and weeding rather than treatment products.
One of our specialties, notably the Grand Cru Riesling, comes from the place called Altenberg in Wolxheim.
At the foot of the Horn rock, the Altenberg is at the very heart of the Wolxheim vineyard. About thirty remarkably exposed hectares benefit from an ideal microclimate, very dry, at an altitude of 200 to 250 meters.
We have been certified organic since 2022.
Work in the vineyards
Currently the works of the ground occupy our days. In organic farming, various tools are used to remove weeds below the row. Several. interventions are necessary at various times, loosen the soil, mounding to cover the base of the feet to smother the weeds, starting, passage of subsoiler, etc …
The hoeing stars, which are mainly known under the Kress brand, consist of a small metal star disc attached to a large rubber finger disc. The metal discs have curved fingers to rest in the ground and thus drive the large discs. These rubber fingers hug the base of the vines without damaging them. The vines are thus well cleaned. These tools are adjustable in inclination: a large angle makes it possible to work locally at greater depth, while a low angle will offer more surface work over a wider band. Allowing high working speeds, Kress stars are only effective on relatively dry soils, whose structure is weakened and weeds at an early stage.
