Dirler Cadé

Written by Piero Pardini


Dirler Cade, is one of the most popular wineries in Alsace, located in Bergholtz, a charming village of about a thousand inhabitants, 3 km south-east from Guebwiller.

With François Bouchet, advisor in Bio-Dynamics, Jean and Jean-Pierre Dirler, following internships in 1997, a year later, they decided to convert six out of nine hectares of the estate to Biodynamic agriculture.

In 1999, the last 3 hectares (steeper and narrower vineyards) were converted, introducing horse plowing into the cultivation of the Estate. Since 2000, the family business has grown with the acquisition of another 4 ha.

From 2001 to 2004, the Estate continued to take over the vineyards for a total of 18 hectares and converted all the land into biodynamic agriculture.
