Bernard HAAS & Fils
Alsatian Wines in Kaysersberg

OUR HISTORY

Since 1776, Bernard HAAS & Fils are involved in the wine industry. With passion and savoir faire, we bring together tradition and innovation. The results of long days worked in a well-known vineyard carried out with dedication.
Located in the heart of the Alsatian Wine Road, the medieval city of Kaysersberg is renowned for several facts; Doctor Albert Schweitzer’s native village, awarded Nobel Peace Prize, abundant history dating back to 1227, its notorious wines paired gastronomy, and famous Christmas market.
Our family winery in Kaysersberg is near the civil hospital and the town hall. We also are in close proximity to the emblematic Church (13th-16th Centuries) and the imperial castle with its fortified towers (13th Century). In 2017, the city of Kaysersberg was elected “French people’s favorite village” for its beautiful pathways and famous half-timbering houses.
For several generations, we have worked independently, from the harvest, bottling, to the sale. All of our wines come from our very own harvest and all the vinification process takes place in our family cellar. The same can be said for the bottling, labeling and sale of our wines.

GEOGRAPHIC SITUATION
KAYSERSBERG, Alsace, France.

Our vineyard is located at the gates of the city of Kaysersberg, to the left and the right of the castle.

To the right, there is an exceptional terroir, which is the first classified Grand Cru in Alsace; the Grand Cru Schlossberg.

Our vineyard faces south and sits on a very steep hillside where terraces have been built. With a microclimate, clay and sandy soil, the Grand Cru Schlossberg is profitable for the Riesling and the Gewurztraminer. It admirably gives well-balanced, rich and fine wines with mineral, floral or subtle fruity aromas.

Our vineyard located to the left of the castle is named “Côtes the Kaysersberg”. Also along the steep slopes, this terroir expresses distinctive and very fruity wines with delicate finesse aromas.

Our business is exceptional being that it is family owned for generations. All year long, we work on eleven hectares of vineyard. Sixty percent of the vineyard is represented by three grape varieties; the Riesling, the Gewurztraminer and the Pinot Gris.

We work in sustainable agriculture and we recently obtained the HVE certification (High Environmental Value). We apply a variety of techniques in up keeping the vineyard including tillage, partial grass and reaping.

During the harvest, everything is manually done and the yields are lowered to favor the concentration of aromas in the grapes.
