Winery of the Week: Domaine Camille Braun
July 09, 2018
While generations of the Braun family have grown grapes in Alsace since 1593, it’s been only since 1960 that the wines have been made and commercialized by the winery, located at the southern part of the Alsace Wine Route.
Camille and Marguerite Braun passed the domaine to their son Christophe, who with his wife, Chantal, farm 37 acres. They have practiced organic agriculture (certified organic by Ecocert) and biodynamics throughout the vineyard since 2005.
The domaine offers a wide range of wines from all of Alsace’s permitted grape varieties, from entry level to Grand Cru, and including Cremant, single-varietal and blended wines, as well as sweet late-harvest wines.
The vineyards are located in Grand Cru Pfingstberg, Bollenberg, Lippelsberg and Buchrod in and around Orschwihr; two parcels on the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru in Katzenthal, and nearly five acres of vines in Uffholtz.
