About

Founded in 1958, Domaine Mittnacht is a family-run estate led by the charming couple of Christophe and Yuka Mittnacht. They farm some of the finest vineyards around the town of Hunawihr. Christophe was an early pioneer of the biodynamic movement, believing that biologically complex, complete soils are essential for producing elegant and terroir driven wines. The domaine was officially certified biodynamic in 1999 – one of the very first in all of Alsace. Christophe believes in minimal intervention and letting the soil sing using neutral wood and tank to deliver spot-on, expressive and beautifully delicate wines. Christophe harvests balanced fruit and avoids the excesses of alcohol and residual sugar that mask the freshness and florality that makes Alsace so special.
