Pierre Sparr

Grand Cru Schoenenbourg Riesling 2020

  • Vegan
For more than 300 years, the Sparr family has farmed vines in the village of Sigolsheim, Alsace, with a singular philosophy: “The quality of a fine wine already exists in the grape. That experience can be seen in every sip of this coveted Riesling. Coming from just three rows in the Schoenenbourg Grand Cru, this wine is handled with extreme care throughout every stage of its production. Expressive and complex on the nose, with notes of peach, citrus, and white flowers. On the palate, this wine is elegant and mineral, refreshing, bold and balanced. Drink now with everything from balsamic-glazed chicken to foie gras and spicy Asian fare, or cellar for several years. Vegan.

Pierre Sparr

In 1680, Jean Sparr founded the Sparr family winery in the Alsace village of Sigolsheim. Over the next few centuries, the Sparr family worked the land, maintaining and expanding their estate, making sure every decision aligns with their philosophy: “the quality of a fine wine already exists in the grape.” Pierre Sparr took over the winery in the early 20th century and soon after became one of the pioneers of estate bottling in Alsace. Following devastation of World War II, Pierre rebuilt the family domaine, taking equal care in rebuilding the integrity of the local soils. Today, the ninth generation of Sparrs is at the helm of this historic domaine, managing the estate, which now extends over 15 hectares in the heart of Alsace, and sources fruit from another 130 hectares of local, sustainably managed vineyards. “Excellence without compromise” is the winery’s motto, and the Sparr quest for excellence is never-ending.
