In 1698, Balthazar Albrecht settled in Orschwihr and worked the land with tenacity and passion to build the reputation and authentic character of Alsace wines produced on the rich and renowned terroirs of the Orschwihr vineyard. This passion for the soil, the vines and their fruits—Alsace wines and crémants (quality sparkling wines)—has been nurtured for over 300 years with respect for the traditions handed down through generations. Today, we are the heirs of this ancestral wine-making expertise. Our wine growers in Orschwihr continue to cultivate this rich and generous land. Our wine experts and our team transform these sun-soaked grapes into wine with passion and respect, to ensure that the authentic character of Lucien Albrecht Alsace Wines and Crémants has a safe future in our hands. Lucien Albrecht is proud to celebrate this year an anniversary dear to its heart: 40 years of the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée Crémant d’Alsace. As a pioneer in the Crémant d’Alsace, which it began producing in 1971, and thanks to its perseverance and successful trials and tests, it is one of three Alsatian firms to have launched the Crémant d’Alsace. On August 24, 1976 the AOC was made official. In 2016, our celebration of those 40 years centers on our range of Crémant d’Alsace Lucien Albrecht.
