Description

History

The family of Schlumberger comes from Souabe, a German region today a part of Bade Wurtemberg.
Claus Schlumberger was the first to settle in Guebwiller in the XVI century under the period of the monks “The Princes Abbés”.

As he couldn’t bare the domination of the monks, he moved to Mulhouse, a free and protestant town.
At his death, several Schlumberger family members came from Souabe to settle in Mulhouse. Like Claus himself most of them were tanners.

Several generations followed one another and in the XVII Century Schlumberger was one of the biggest families in Mulhouse.

Pinot Blanc History

Even though the Pinot Blanc is very old (already known in the 16th century), it achieved its present reputation only during the last few years. This grape variety is not originating from the Bourgogne(Burgundy) region but comes from Northern Italy. It was first introduced by the Anglo-Saxons. The French then also discovered it gradually and they began to appreciate this wine for its qualities of freshness, suppleness and its food-friendliness.

Our Pinot Blanc is located essentially in the vines of Saering & Spiegelas well as the localities of Bux and Bollenberg.
