WINEMAKERS FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION SINCE 1785

Edmond Rentz

It was at Zellenberg in 1785 that Thomas Rentz became fascinated in winemaking, setting up his own vineyard and producing his own wine for his family’s consumption and some local taverns.

From 1920, Edmond Rentz enlarged the size of his vineyard and dedicated his life to the wines of Alsace. Amongst the first to start using modern bottling technics from 1930, where he decided to tailor the quality of his wines and place his name on each bottle, thereby creating the Edmond Rentz brand.

His son, Raymond Rentz took over the estate in 1953 and extended his vineyard around Zellenberg, Riquewihr, Hunawihr, Ribeauvillé and Bergheim. He built a new cellar and combined age-old traditions with modernity. He worked hard to further improve the quality of his wines, vinifying both vines and terroirs.

 

Catherine Rentz and her brother Patrick then join the family business in 1995 and developed a form of viticulture that was more environmentally friendly. This evolution however stays true to the family spirit of always seeking to improve the quality, distinctiveness and authenticity of their wine
