Something a little special…..

The Simmler winery is located in the hearth of the village of Saint Hippolyte, in the Haut-Rhin region of Alsace in France. The house was probably built in 1768, but the date 1700 still appears on a older construction.

The passion for the profession of winegrower has been shared for several generations. It was his grandfather “Jules Simmler”, then his father “Maurice Simmler”, that the winemaking part took on its full importance, notably with the introduction of the Pinot Noir grape variety which made the reputation of the village with its famous wine : “Saint Hippolyte Rouge

The winery, now run by Nicolas SIMMLER, continues to develop, perpetuating the family tradition.
