In the 1950s, the Fritz estate was under the management of Mr René Fritz, who carried on the tradition and developed the vineyard. In 1993, the inheritance of the estate by his daughter Catherine Fritz and her husband Bernard Schmitt gave birth to the Fritz-Schmitt estate. Their children take turns joining the family estate. The blending of these personalities provides the special motivation to continue to develop authentic wines with character.
Both founders builders of this estate, Bernard oversees managing the vineyard and is implementing the transition to organic farming.
Catherine embodies the warm soul of the estate and welcomes and serves our clients.
In 2014 their son Antoine joined the estate, bringing environmental concerns to the fore, as well as developing new vintages.
In 2018, Justine, Antoine’s sister, also joined the venture, adding a feminine touch and the know-how that she had acquired during her training as a caterer.
