has been run since 1993 by Jean-Christophe Bott, heir to a family tradition dating back to 1795. The estate covers 14 hectares (35 acres) of vineyards, including five grand crus and three lieux-dits. The property extends into seven different villages stretching from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim, in the heart of the area of Alsace known as the “pearls of the vineyards.” Bott focuses on the natural qualities and unique character of each of his vineyards, making each of his wines an expression of its terroir.
Jean-Christophe Bott converted the Bott-Geyl estate to organic viticulture in 2000 and to biodynamics in 2002. He keeps yields low, works the vineyards sustainably, and uses natural, minimalist vinification techniques, marrying tradition and modernity. The vines of Domaine Bott-Geyl are given the best care: hoeing, plowing, organic compost, pruning, and manual harvesting. Bott intervenes as little as possible in the vinification process, letting nature take its course in order to bottle the most direct representation of each terroir and vintage, resulting in remarkable Alsace and Alsace Grand Cru wines.
