Domaine Barmès-Buecher, located in the heart of the Alsace region, just a few kilometres from Colmar and Eguisheim, was founded in 1985 by Geneviève Barmès (née Buecher) and her husband François Barmès. They combined the land holdings of their respective families, who had owned vines in Wettolsheim, one of the region’s largest wine growing towns, since the 17th century.
Geneviève and François chose to grow their vines using biodynamic practices, which places the emphasis on a respect for nature, life forces and natural cycles. The Domaine’s 15 hectares were converted to biodynamic growing in 1998 and have been certified biodynamic since the 2001 vintage.
This form of wine growing allows a closer relationship with the terroir and a better understanding of the environment surrounding the vine and the wine grower.
The Barmès-Buecher family believes in working in a spirit of trust and has a dedicated and committed team upon whom they can rely. The team is made up of 8 people, including Geneviève, Maxime and Sophie, who strive each day to make wine of great quality. All of the work in the vineyards is carried out by permanent and experienced team members in close collaboration with the winemaker and the family. Thanks to their painstaking, meticulous work, the Domaine is able to produce unique wines.
Domaine Barmès-Buecher is guided and defined by its desire to reflect the balance, harmony and purest natural expression of the terroir, vintage and varietal.
