Alsace Gilbert Ruhlmann Fils, a Winery Story in Lovely Alsace
Originally a lumberjack, Gilbert Ruhlmann founded Alsace Gilbert Ruhlmann Fils winery in 1958 in the heart of the Alsatian vineyard. The first vintage, he sold the majority of his production in bottles to local suppliers. In 1962, after he married, he relocated to Scherwiller and decided to grow only three grape varieties on his small farm. In the 70s, Gilber built a new winery that produces incredible Alsatian wines. In the 80s, the winery expanded and planted seven grape varieties found in Alsace. In 1984, the first Crémant d’Alsace wine as well came to market.
