Bott Geyl
France, Alsace
Green Status: Biodynamic

Jean-Christophe Bott and his ancestors have been winegrowers in Beblenheim in Alsace in France since 1795.  Jean-Christophe has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993, transitioning the vineyards to organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002.

 

In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vignoble for posterity and to protect its ecology.

 

Today, Domaine Bott-Geyl has the good fortune to tend 15 hectares of vines including 6 Grands Crus and 4 named vineyards (lieux dits). They strive to bring out the natural and unique qualities of each of the terroirs and to conduct the vinification to show the unique character of each wine.

 

The Domaine consists of 80 parcels spread out over seven communes from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim in the heart of the region named the “the Pearls of Vignoble”.

 

Roanoke Valley Wine Company began working with John-Christophe through a national importer in 1996 and began buying directly in 2014, which allows the price to hit the shelf at much better pricing.  We are so happy to be representing Bott-Geyl wines once again!
