Schoenheitz…a name whose Alsatian meaning is related to “beauty” and “a taste for good things”. When history and nature join forces the only path to follow is that of EXCELLENCE.
Please join us Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 at 7:00 PM as we welcome Adrien Schoenheitz of Schoenheitz Winery, who will be presenting his family’s wines from the Munster Valley (famous for its cheese) in Alsace. Adrien studied viticulture and oenology in Alsace and has worked in other parts of France including Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.
The Shoenheitz family arrived in Alsace from Austria after the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century, starting a wine business in the village of Wihr-au-Val in 1812. Most of the vineyards around the village were destroyed during the First World War, and the village itself was levelled during the Second World War. Adrian’s grandfather started replanting vines in the 1960s, and with Adrian’s parents, established the winery in 1980.
The wines of Schoenheitz have only become available in Virginia in the last year, and we are pleased to be able to showcase them, with a delectable menu Chef Jacques designed to complement their qualities.
