Producer's description

Members of the family Schlumberger are from Baden-Vyuyurtemberg - areas in Germany. Klaus Schlumberger was the first who settled in the French town of Guebwiller in the 16th century. But later moved to Mulhouse. Later moved here and other family members, most of whom were tanners. Generation gave way to one another, and by the 17th century, Schlumberger was the largest family in the city. One of the descendants of Nicolas Schlumberger moved to Mulhouse in 1810, where he not only opened a weaving factory, and 20 hectares of vineyards and wine cellars. After the death of the winery passed to his sons, Jean, Adolf and Nicolas. Adolf and Nicolas quickly surrendered, and farm management engaged Jean. Subsequently, he inherited all the land, vineyards and woods.

The next owner was the son of Jean Schlumberger - Paul, who was forced to move to Paris with his family (wife and sons, 6), since at the time Alsace was annexed to Germany. His three sons moved to the United States, where they founded the oil company of the same name, and one of his sons - Ernest returned to the winery. He was a fan of wine and dedicated his life to his favorite occupation. Despite the fact that as a result of the disease in one of the years lost all the grapes, Ernest did not despair, and transplanted the vines and expanded its ownership from 40 hectares to 110 hectares. He used a horizontal landing system. Later moved to vineyard management Ernest daughter, Christine, and later her eldest son Eric. Eric Schlumberger retired in 2001 and handed over the company to his son and brother.

Today Domain Schlumberger uses to make wine exclusively own grapes, can boast only 22% of Alsace wine. In addition, the economy is gradually beginning to use organic winemaking principles. 60 hectares of land is being processed in a similar way, with 30 hectares of them practice biodynamic viticulture.
