Top choice: Vignoble Klur a holistic approach

lonely_P_2010Local knowledge corner interviewed Francine Klur vintner at Vignoble Klur. Wine appreciation is 30% about the wine itself and 70% about the rest - the company, the food, the scenery, the ambiance. That's why we take a holistic approach at Vignoble Klur.

Alsace and Klur recommended by Lonely planet

 lonely_planetLonely Planet Guide and magazine recommand to  stop at Vignoble Klur: a 100% organic stop and a real Hot Spot of the region. "This charming place will agree to nature lovers, every thing here is organic and perfect for cooconing and pamper yourself. Klur family will welcome you with warmness and help you to discover Alsace wines and gastronomy. Try a wine tour or workshop and if you tasted to much, a sauna with wellness massage may be organised for you. Alsace is one of the 18 top destinations of France, don't miss it as you dont want to miss Tour Eiffel, Mont St Michel of Pont du Gard.  (...)"


Half way for 2011 harvest

A lot of buzz around the press....beautifull nights and days, beautifull grappes, wine growers are happy this year, espacially organic ones. The Rendez Vous with quantities and quality is perfect: at Klur wine estate we noticed: 12 degres for pinot blanc, 13 for pinot noir, 14 for pinot gris, 13 for sylvaner. The fermentations started very quick and we have to control the temperatures very carefully but everything is doing well and there are these special sounds in the wine cellars actually...This week we will pick the muscat, grands crus wineck schlossberg riesling and gewurztraminer, and keep the gewurztraminer Hinterburg for the late harvest in about 2 or 3 weeks. Pictures of the day: our holiday guest of Garden Side house participate to the sounds of the press activity by day and night...the visit of the 3rd class of the Waldorf school was a success and they harvested all the pinot noir of the "school vineyard together" and need some outdoor plays after the picnic. A lot of questions around the press, the juice, the marc,  oh ! " Hurry hurry its time to go !!"
