This is the 12th generation of Cattin family producing wine from their winery in the small village of Voegtlinshoffen, on the foothills of the Vosges Mountains, at an elevation of 1091 feet. This is their first orange wine made by macerating white grapes in contact with their skins, and the results make for a fantastic food friendly wine.

Cattin is the largest family-owned and family-operated winery in Alsace and located in Voegtlinshoffen, a small village on the foothills of the Vosges Mountains at 1,091 feet in elevation. The Cattin family has been producing wine since 1720 and today the winery is managed by the 12th generation! The estate is composed of many small plots located in the Southern part of the Colmar region and a staggering 80% of their vineyard land is located on slopes. A broad menu of soils (clay, limestone, sandstone, ferruginous, marl…), combined with big time diurnal shifts, means an exceptional palate of aromas and flavors. Cattin uses old oak “foudres” (big barrels) to produce some of the region’s most terroir driven Grand Cru wines such as the legendary Hatschbourg which ranks among the family’s oldest plots. Over the past several decades Crémants have become the house specialty and these are what initially caused us to bang their doors down.

Bright orange in appearance with a nose of candied orange peel, lemon peel and spices. A full mouth palate, expressing great complexity. This Pinot Gris is full-bodied and complex, expressing candied orange peel flavors combined with fresh spiciness. Very food- friendly.

Orange Cattin comes from very healthy and fully ripe grapes that are hand-harvested in September.
It undergoes maceration in whole bunches for 48 hours. It is fermented for 2 weeks in old oak casks followed with ageing on fine lees for 4 more weeks.

It pairs great with spicy dishes, Indian and Thai, pork chops, mushroom risotto, charcuterie.
