The winery is fitted with 30 small and temperature-controlled vats, which enables us to vinify each plot separately in order to end up with a top cuvée (Grand Cru) and a second wine (Terroir).
As a result of our choice for quality and better temperature control, the winery has been fitted with stainless steel vats.
This picture is reminiscent of Marc Rinaldi’s two former business lives:
-Rinaldi Structal’s structural silicone glazing for building facades (until 1993);
-Automotive sports with the l’Anneau du Rhin –or Ring of the Rhine- race track (from 1995 onwards).
The framework has been designed according to the pattern of the traditional Mann to be found in Alsatian half-timbered houses and that inspired the Estate’s logo –two Ks opposed one to another-, and which gives all its character to the building.
The building has been designed according to the golden ration of 1.618.
Sitting at the tasting table made from staves of a former foudre -or large wooden vat-, one gets a comprehensive view of the wine growing, making and ageing processes.

- The bronze stainless steel vats
- Wood barrels designed for Pinot Noir
This overview perspective is reminiscent of wineries in California and South Africa.
