Our vineyard

Our Vineyard, the Fritz-Schmitt, was created in 1993 following the take over of Mr René Fritz by Mr Bernard Schmitt. The business went through rapid expansion and a new winery was built in order to accommodate additional production.

Year after year, we have been improving our production methods and are now equipped with temperature control for each tank. This allows us to take the full advantage of each grape variety.

Here at Fritz-Schmitt we give a lot of attention to the plants and not merely the fruit. Our vineyards are planted in such a way so as to accommodate our new tools and machinery. Despite all these changes, however, many of the tasks remain manual, such as for example the process of harvesting. Since 2011, Romeo, our horse of the Comtois breed, allows us to work on the young vines.

Our business was able to place its specialty, the famous Rouge d’Ottrott, to centre stage. You can now enjoy this wine in over 7 countries worldwide. You can also find us at numerous trade fairs and events throughout France.

In order to find out when we will be near you, please get in touch with us or subscribe to our newsletter. In this way, you will automatically be informed about the different event dates.

Dear reader and potential client, you are cordially invited to visit us at our wine cellar in the historic village of Ottrott in order to discover the vast variety of our wines: the whites, the reds and the sparkling wine varieties.

We are hoping to see you soon!

The Fritz-Schmitt team
