La Cave Grand Cru Château Ollwiller

The 1st World War was hard on the wine Castle of Ollwiller in the southern part of the Alsace, 40 km north-north-west from Basel.
It had been standing since 1230, but when the smoke cleared in 1919, only parts of a few walls were left.

But the bombs could not erase what had been started by Mr. Jacques-Gabriel Gros a hundred years earlier. He laid the foundation for the later so highly praised result of the winemaking in the area.

Today, about a hundred winemakers produce Alsatian wines here. It is a very small cooperative, and the winemakers take aim for quality rather than volume.

Three Grand Crus are made here: Ollwiller, Spiegel and Zinnkoepflé. Only the castle of Ollwiller has the right to use the denomination Château d'Olwiller, making them one of the only two wines in this region with this privilege.

Black Forest is proud to make these outstanding wines available for Thailand's visitors.

As an example his 'Les Fumées Blanches' is of the most popular wines in Sweden.

Black Forest is proud to have welcomed François Lurton on Amatara, luxury resort on Cape Panwa, Southern Phuket, an outstanding setting provided and food was provided.

Dr. Loosen on Moevenpick Resort

Dr. Ernst Loosen, 'the Godfather of Riesling', presented his wines on Moevenpick Resort, Bangtao Beach. Black Forest was proud to arrange the event which (again, should we say!) drew full house.

At the 5 course outdoor dinnner (created by executive Chef Sasha Duracovic) at the Hotel's beach Club, Ernst Loosen presented the wines also from single vineyards in his very own personal way.

Mr Loosen underlined the perfect match of German riesling with Thai cuisine.
