Maison Kuentz-Bas was first established by the Kuentz family in 1795, and the domaine was forged through a marriage that joined the Kuentz and Bas families in 1895. Nestled in the town of Husseren-les-Châteaux, it sits at one of the highest points in Alsace, and the vineyards stretch out from the village over an area of ten hectares. More than two hundred years of tradition and vineyard pedigree have made these wines perennial favorites. Today, meticulous attention to detail is the defining characteristic of both the viticulture and the vinification at Maison Kuentz-Bas. Winemaker Samuel Tottoli and vigneron Jean-Baptiste follow organic and biodynamic approaches to vineyard work, and employ natural methods in the winery. Their 2016 Blanc is a fragrant blend of Sylvaner, Auxerrois, Chasselas, and Muscat from vines ranging in age between 25 and 40 years old.
