Passionate about travelling and and architecture, we have visited many family-owned wine cellars, some of them showing exceptional originality. All have a common aim : to democratise one of the most beautiful parts of French heritage : wine.
We no longer want to use our winery solely as a work tool, but also as a place of exchange, where the story of wine is told through a familial and regional history.
We are privileged guardians of a rich history and heritage. To this day we have created a place of sharing, where those passionate about wine or those less so, leave feeling enriched. We want to bring not only a cultural but also an emotional wealth to our visitors.
The existence of the ZEYSSOLFF family in Alsace dates back to the fifteenth century. In 1574, two brothers from the ZEYSSOLFF family, one of them a lawyer and the other a judge, were bestowed a family crest for their services to the city of Strasbourg.
Jean-Daniel ZEYSSOLFF, a winemaker from Gertwiller, at the heart of the Alsacian vineyards, founded La Maison ZEYSSOLFF. Since then, the wine cultivation tradition has been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. The numerous awards obtained at various competitions are a testament to the importance of these traditions. La Maison ZEYSSOLFF offers all the grape varietals of Alsace which are appreciated both regionally and further afield.
La Maison Zeyssolff became one of the pioneering wineries adopting on-site bottling.
Yvan ZEYSSOLFF took over the family business. Since then, La Maison Zeyssolff has been striving to preserve the environment. They limit their use of chemicals and resort to organic methods of cultivation (the estate converted to organic viticulture in 2018).
The wine shop, “Au Péché Vigneron” opened. The entirety of the ZEYSSOLFF wines as well as a wide variety of fine groceries and local products are sold here, with which one can create gourmet baskets – a house specialty.
“La Maisonnette,” a cottage classified 4 stars, opened. This small high-end loft combining comfort and modernity meets the needs of a high-end clientele.
