At VinumDivinum, we know all about wine. And it is with passion that we transmit this knowledge to our customers.
We thus guarantee unforgettable moments at home with a wine accompaniment made by VinumDivinum.
Our wine boxes with suitable recipe suggestions, which really everyone can cook, allow you to shine as a host and provide
the ideal basis for a cozy evening at home, during which you learn at the same time something about wine.
Do you want to stay in touch with us and learn more about wine, us and our offer? Then sign up for our newsletter,
which we send every two weeks to wine lovers.
We produce - in harmony with the seasons - between 2,500 and 3,000 bottles of wine and around 1,500 bottles of sparkling wine per year.
We currently work with 5 different grape varieties and, depending on the mood of the weather, we strive to conjure up the perfect result from grapes, sun and cellar art.
Quality is our top priority, and with every piece of work we make a valuable contribution to nature.
We would like to share with you the fascinating stories that the wines tell year after year. So, welcome to the magical Wissmann-Jessel wine manufactory!
Our factory is right on the border between France and Germany, in beautiful Alsace, 6 km from Breisach am Rhein.
In tranquil Obersaasheim with about 1200 inhabitants.
Our grapes grow where spring begins three weeks earlier than elsewhere.
Between Kaiserstuhl and Markgräfler Land, they capture the hours of sunshine and transform them into their sugar-sweet secret.
The soils are diverse. While the Kaiserstuhl is of volcanic origin, the Markgräfler Land is the result of the Rhine plain drifting apart. Both Kaiserstuhl and Markgräfler Land are characterized by loess soil.
We are currently expanding the three varieties of Gewürztraminer, Muskateller and Pinot Noir.
All of our wines are dry, even if some varieties initially appear to be sweet.
But we are always on the lookout for something new, so this year the Souviginier gris and Johanniter varieties will find their way into our cellar for the first time.
We love to let every wine tell its story. Since we usually make our wines dry, we value fine acidity with a well-developed fruit body.
At the same time, we try to control the alcohol content of our wines by harvesting them in good time, as they are fully fermented.
After the wines are fermented, they are further processed in our wine cellar. We intervene as little as possible in its aging process, but this requires close accompaniment of the wine.
Since the basement is relatively small at 40 square meters, we have to be well organized in our work steps.
Everything goes hand in hand and is stowed away according to the Tetris principle.
