Domaine Eblin-Fuchs, a Centuries Old Winery
The geographical makeup of Domaine Eblin-Fuchs terroir is quite exceptional. The formation of the hills is a result of the collapse of the Rhenan ditch and the Tectonic cascade where the village of Zellenberg and the winery are located. Domaine Eblin-Fuchs is an effort of two different generations of winemaking families. The marriage of Marie Madeleine Fuchs with Henri Joseph Eblin in 1956 brought the two ancient winemaking families together. The winemaking history of the families of Domaine Eblin-Fuchs dates back centuries. As early as 1294, the Eblin Family Coat of Arms was present in the region, and the earliest recorded Fuchs family member as a winemaker was recorded in 1615.
