The DomainAt the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill, in a setting of vines and roses, the Domaine Weinbach "stream of wine", named after the small stream that crosses it, was built in 1612 by the Capuchin monks.

Sold as national property during the French Revolution, the Estate was acquired in 1898 by the Faller brothers who passed it on to their son and nephew Théo. A great figure in the Alsatian vineyard and ardent promoter of its recognition as an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, Théo Faller works for the quality of Alsace wines and the enhancement of their incomparable terroirs and grape varieties. In love with his property, he developed it, enlarged it and embellished it.

From 1979, his wife Colette and his daughters Catherine and Laurence showed the same passion for the great wines of Alsace and the same unwavering attachment to quality.

In 1998, Domaine Weinbach began to practice biodynamics on 8 hectares. The cultivation of the rest of the vineyards was based on classical organic methods. Since the 2005 vintage, all the vineyards (28 hectares) have been worked biodynamically.

Since 2016, Catherine Faller has been running the Estate with her sons Eddy and Théo.
