The winery is located in the commune of Bergholtz in the French wine growing region of Alsace (Haut-Rhin). It was founded in 1871 by the former teacher Jean Dirler. Jean-Pierre Dirler resumed operations in 1962 after the estate had been deactivated for some time. Today it is run by his son Jean Dirler and his wife Ludivine. Biodynamic viticulture has been practised since 1998. A large part of the Cadé vineyard was taken over, which resulted in an extension of the name to "Domaine Dirler-Cadé". However, only "Dirler" continues to appear on the labels. The vineyards cover 17 hectares, of which about 40% are in Grand Cru locations. The Grand-Cru varieties cultivated are Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Muscat d'Alsace (Muscat Blanc), as well as Gutedel (Chasselas), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Sylvaner. The estate is spread over several sites. The wines under the AC Alsace Grand Cru come from the Kessler, Kitterlé, Saering and Spiegel sites.
