To craft exceptional sparkling wines in harmony with nature that authentically reflect the region and stand out from the rest - that was Tim Weißbach's and Isabel Strauch-Weißbach's goal when they jointly took over the traditional Dalbergerhof sparkling wine cellar, the estate of Isabel Strauch-Weißbach's parents, in 2011 and launched the STRAUCH Sektmanufaktur.
Organic cultivation of the approximately 25 hectares of vineyards with the best sites Osthofener Goldberg, Osthofener Liebenberg and Mettenheimer Michelsberg is an important component. Pure hand harvesting and gentle processing of the base wines according to méthode traditionnelle, as well as maturation on the lees for at least 15 months are essential for the quality of the sparkling wines. The combination of typical Champagne grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot noir with the classic grape varieties Pinot blanc and Riesling make the difference.
"To produce distinctive sparkling wines, in harmony with nature, that can compete with the great wines of the world, that authentically reflect us and our region, and that stand out from the rest."
