The Story

We've been producing crémant d'Alsace since 1981 and we have gained conviction that Alsace terroir combined with local grape varietals can produce as good if not better sparkling than those from another famous region in France...

We called our crémant "brut formula phi" in relation to the Golden Ratio and our quest of elegance. Choices of vine-plots, grape varietals, aging period, sugar dosage are all possibilities in the search for this goal.

Convivial, Festive and Exceptional - Whether for a laid-back summertime aperitif, a celebratory get together, or an intimate anniversary dinner, there is a Rieflé wine for every occasion. The Riefé family believes that each moment should be celebrated, and when time and circumstances allow, punctuate the celebration with a glass of wine.
