『根據香港法律，不得在業務過程中，向未成年人售賣或供應令人醺醉的酒類。』 “Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.”
In 2016, the two sons Jean and Pierre Dietrich convinced their father Yves to start making wine under their name in Alsace instead of selling grapes to winemakers, and it was a resounding success since.
Their vineyards have been managed in organic farming since 1999 and biodynamic since 2003. With a lot of sensitivity, the brothers now move a few steps further in the direction of natural wine. They now own 18.5 hectares of vines and 6 hectares of fruit trees from which the family produce Cremant d'Alsace, still reds and whites, skin-contact, and also Pet-Nats (short for the French 'pétillant naturel' meaning 'natural sparkling') from black and red cherries, damsons and victoria plums.
The prices of their wines are friendly, but that does not mean it lacks attention to detail and complexity. The wines are always unfined and unfiltered, fermented naturally, without any chemicals added, and just a tiny bit of sulphur added before bottling. They produce wine of tension and pleasure in a clean and slightly reductive style. Extremely underrated.
