Dopff & Irion
Alsace Dopff & Irion are based at Chateau de Riquewihr in the heart of the Alsace region and can trace the family origins as far back as the 16th century. From generation to generation they have built upon their heritage in the Chateau and the vineyards to produce truly exceptional wines. Dopff & Irion offer us all the diversity of the appellations, grape varieties, Cru’s, localities and specialities of the Alsatian vineyards. The Alsace region is recognised for its unique ‘terroir’ and the richness of its people in producing some of the greatest white wines in the world. The Wines from Dopff & Irion are exclusive to Bellwether Wines in the UK. This year we will be listing 4 single varietal wines made from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, each expressing the exceptional specific style of the ‘terroir’ of their origin. The wines complement a variety of food dishes and work particularly well with modern fusion and Asian cuisine.
