Domaine Barmes Buecher

A matter of philosophy

Located in Wettolsheim, one of the largest towns in Alsace by area under vine, Domaine Barmès Buecher was created in 1985 by Geneviève Barmès (née Buecher) and François Barmès with vineyards that had been in their families since the 17th century.

Ten years later, this energetic couple converted the Domaine's sixteen hectares to biodynamic farming, a practice that encourages agriculture based on the cycles of the planets and the moon. The objective was simple: to encourage the vines to reengage their natural state of being once clouded by modern farming and to encourage each vine to recover its natural state of equilibrium and harmony.

The conversion to biodynamics has made the vines more resistant and autonomous.

The sudden loss of François in 2011 accelerated the installation of his children, Sophie and Maxime, as key figures in the family business. Today, Genevieve, Sophie and Maxime are determined to maintain the energy and balance acquired over the years by Domaine Barmès Buecher and to continue to grow.
