All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is now running the estate having studied and gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.

Jean Luc Mader Pinot Blanc 2016
Made from a blend of 60% Auxerrois and 40% Pinot blanc. Fine, racy and floral. Classic white flower and citric aromas lead to a crisp and refreshing palate. For so long Pinot blanc has been considered as an aperitif wine to start the meal but given a wine of this intensity and character this wine is a whole lot more than a simple aperitif wine – it is remarkably complete with wonderful intensity and personality.

Jean Luc Mader Riesling 2015
Contains almost 20% of de-classified Rosacker Grand cru fruit. A fine dry Riesling with texture and depth. Intense floral citrus and lime aromas with mineral backing and wonderful acid backbone. 2014: A tangy wine with a bright and intense acidity and delicious fruit. Full body, dried citrus and mineral. Crazy quality for entry level wine. Screw cap. Drink now. Rating: 92 Points; James Suckling

Jean Luc Mader Gewurztraminer 2015
Take one whiff of this wine and it’s impossible to mistake the grape variety. Shows classic rose petal aromas, with hints of wild flowers and exotic Lychee fruit. Lovely round texture, with layer after layer of flavour extending to a very long and generous finish. Very fragrant nose of flowers and peaches. The palate is full of delightful flavors of light honey and apricot. There is a hint of residual sugar. This wine pairs perfectly with Asian cuisine and strong cheeses. This is classic Alsace Gewurztraminer. Roger Voss' note on the 2013: "A wine with subtle lime, clove and slice apple character. Full-bodied, dry and balanced. A subtle and stylish gewurz. Such pleasure. From organically grown grapes. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling

Jean Luc Mader Pinot Gris 2015
Very fresh and fragrant, peach, apple and tropical fruit characters on the nose and palate. Round and supple in texture, with wonderfully precise flavour. Great concentration and depth with a tiny amount of residual sweetness (7.8gms/ltr) in this cool vintage. The rich texture and cleansing acid balance gives this wine terrific length and great appeal.
