The ZEYSSOLF Winery, it is also a wonderful cellar, with about twenty centenary oak casks, with each a capacity of 10 000 liters (2640 gal).
Its big curiosity is the ZEYSSOLFF cask, made in 1897 for the World Fair in Paris, in 1900. This barrel is still in use nowadays : we use it for the Pinot Gris for few genererations.
With an appointment, the ZEYSSOLFF Winery offers you a complete guided tour of the place, with explanations about the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle.
NEW in July 2020 ! opening of a scenographic experience with an immersive video at 180° screened on the casks.
This year, following the complete organic conversion of the Zeyssolff Winery, we decided to renovate our cellar and we take this opportunity to present our future visitors with a new activity.
This film is not a remake of what is already available today explaining the work in the vines…BUT, it’s a film on our personnal, and rather rich, family history as well as our work philosophy. It is screened at 180° in the cellar, on our centenary old oak casks (mapping on certain sequences) with fabulous sound effects that will enable the public to be in total immersion in our story.
This immersive film is available in 2 languages, French and English, in our cellar starting from summer 2020.

HOW TO REACH US…
“Au Péché Vigneron – Vins Zeyssolff” – 156 route de Strasbourg – 67140 Gertwiller.
Please stay on the main road (Strasbourg road) and do not turn in the lane indicated by google map, this indication is incorrect. The entrance to our shop is in front of the large common parking lot, shared with our colleagues «the gingerbread Fortwenger».
Know that if you come with your own vehicle you can, of course, park on the large parking lot in front of the estate.
If you would like to arrive by taxi – VTC, you can contact https://evasioncars.com/ , personalized service and online quote.
If you want to arrive by train, here are two options:
– Stop at Gertwiller (nearest railway station), 5 minutes walk from the estate.
– Stop at Barr, 20 minutes walk from the estate.
Since Gertwiller is a small station, it is certainly less served than Barr, which has more frequent departures and arrivals.
Do not hesitate to consult the schedules on: https://www.oui.sncf/
