Jean-Francois tends the vines, Jean-Philippe is the oenologist and cellar master, Martine takes care of sales and promotion. Thirteen generations of Beckers have grown vines and made wine in the picturesque village of Zellenberg, from 1610 to the present day. The current generation wanted to leave their children a bright and healthy future. In 1999 they converted to organic viticulture, convinced that the 10% increase in their costs of production was more than worth the benefit.
The domaine covers 18 hectares in the villages of Zellenberg, Riquewihr, Beblenheim, Ribeauvillé, Kientzheim and Hunawihr. Almost 4.5 hectares is grand cru. The wines are direct but soulful, showing the nuances of terroir.
