The history of the House Zimmer


Issued from a line of winemaker descents from 1840, the family’s ZIMMER managed the trade house “Preiss-Zimmer”.

Since 1999, the house decided to return to a bottling at the domain of wines from its own vineyards (9 hectares around Riquewihr).

The works of reorganization and commercial launch make good progress.

Nowadays, Régine and her daughters, Laure and Carole, decide then to continue to produce wines of the domain in the respect for a quality work to insure the authentic expression of soils.
