Domaines Schlumberger

The winery is located in the commune of Guebwiller (Haut-Rhin) in the French wine region of Alsace. The Schlumberger family, originating from the German state of Baden-Württemberg, immigrated to Alsace in the 16th century. The first generations were still engaged in the production of dyed cotton fabrics. The estate was founded in 1810 by Nicolas Schlumberger (1782-1867) with 20 hectares of vineyards. Today, the largest Alsatian winery covers 140 hectares of vineyards in the communes of Guebwiller and Rouffach at the southern end of the region. Half of this is made up of Grand Cru sites. The Grand-Cru varieties Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Muscat d'Alsace(Muscat Blanc) and Pinot Gris, as well as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Sylvaner are cultivated. The wines under the AOC Alsace Grand Cru come from the Kessler, Kitterlé, Saering and Spiegel sites. The high-class Vendanges Tardives (Spätlese) and Sélection de Grains Nobles (Trockenbeerenauslese from noble rotten berries) are named after various family members "Anne", "Christine" and "Clarice".

The two businesses Schlumberger Wein- und Sektkellerei in Vienna and Privatweingut Hartmut Schlumberger in Sulzburg-Laufen in the German Baden wine region share the same family origins.
