The history of Kientz René Fils dates back to 1696, although the estate was registered as a winery only in 1956. Kientz Rene is located in the village of Bleinschwiller on the famous wine route, about 40 km south of Strasbourg and 30 km north of Colmar. Andrew Kientz is the head of the estate and is well known for his manual harvesting of the grape variety Bacchus.
Perfect Microclimate and Modernized Wine Production
The “Winzenberg” is a mountain that dominates the municipality of Bleinschwiller. Its steep slope and south-south-east exposure guarantee an exceptional duration of sunshine. The microclimate and healthy soils create exceptional Grand Cru wines. Kientz Rene also produces great wines of Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Riesling develops powerful mineral aromas whereas Pinot Gris exudes wonderful smoky notes and Gewurztraminer develops subtle spicy fragrances. The family practices local wine making traditions to produce typical Alsatian white wines. Kientz Rene uses modernized winemaking tools including a new pneumatic press. They recently renovated their tasting room and updated and designed new wine labels to create a fresh new look for the winery.
