The Simonis Family has been farming in Ammerschwihr, just outside Colmar, since the early Seventeenth Century. Following his viticultural education in Beaune and several years apprenticing, Étienne Simonis took over the domaine from his father René in 1996. In 2000 he eliminated all chemical agriculture at the domaine, eventually receiving both Ecocert Organic and Demeter Biodynamic certifications. The domaine comprises 7 hectares in total, most in Ammerschwihr. The average vine age is 40 years, with some parcels dating to the 1950s and earlier.
