Producer
Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002. He concentrates on low yields in the vineyards and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art brings tradition and modernity together, perpetuating the vignoble for posterity and protecting its ecology. Today, they have the good fortune to tend 15 hectares of vines including 6 Grands Crus and 4 Lieux-dits. We strive to bring out the natural qualities and the uniqueness of each of our terroirs and to conduct the vinification in such a way that this uniqueness is imbedded in their wines.

Alsace, located on the northeastern border of France, differs from other wine regions in the country with its pronounced Franco–German culture. This is the result of historical events influencing the changing borders between Germany and France in recent centuries - and they are visible not only in Alsatian architecture and culture, but also in wines. Alsace is the only wine-growing region in France with the famous Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Both of these grapes are more often associated with German wines and serve as reminders of the history of Alsace. Pinot Gris, commonly used in mixtures with different varieties in other regions, is another of the region's noble varieties. Alsatian Grand Cru wines are only allowed to be made from these three varieties, but there is an exception for Muscat grapes, which can be grown under special conditions. The Vosges Mountains play a key role in determining the microclimate of the region; they not only provide protection from the prevailing westerly winds, but also create a natural natural barrier from rain, which helps to reduce the amount of precipitation in the region.
