From a 55-year-old vineyard, this wine is dry, delicate with an elegant bouquet of white flowers and apple blossom, ripe pear with mineral notes. The palate is bright but rounded by some creaminess. 

The Rebgarten (German for "garden of grapes") is a small vineyard located in the commune of Bennwihr. Mainly made of granitic sand, the vines are south-facing which allows them to benefit from a favourable sunshine.

Fonné's family began the winery in 1747 and now, seven generations later, the domaine  has grown to 13ha of vines, spread over 5 communes and a hundred or so plots of land. Michel Fonné has been at the head of the estate since 1989.
