- Winemaker Eric Casimir works with a diverse group of about 30 acres of vineyards, ranging in age from 10-35 years and farmed lutte raisonée, spread in and around the village of Ittersviller on the eastern slopes of the Vosges mountains, about 25 miles southwest of Strasbourg. His steel-fermented Pinot Gris rests for 6 months on its lees, elevating its aromatics and rich texture.
