Catherine Faller

Catherine Faller is without a doubt the grande dame of Alsatian wine. In her time at the reigns of Domaine Weinbach (literally, the “River of Wine” – named after the little stream that flows across the estate), Catherine has consistently raised her terroirs to new heights. Founded in 1612 by Capuchin monks, seized during the French Revolution, then sold as a national property, in 1898 the estate was finally acquired by the Faller brothers. In 1979, the death of her father Théo Faller, a legendary figure in Alsatian wine, presented Catherine and her mother Colette with the challenge of being among the first women in France to head a renowned wine estate. As early as 1998, the Fallers began to experiment with biodynamic viticulture, and in 2005 the estate’s 28 hectares were converted and certified organic and biodynamic by Demeter. Today, with the help of her sons Eddy and Théo, Catherine carries the torch for a line of winemakers famed for their precision and the majesty of their wines.
