The Binner estate was established in 1770, the family has holdings in two of the most valuable growing sites in Alsace; around the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru and plots in Ammerschwihr. The Binner family owns nine hectares and only six of those hectares are under vine.

The vines average age is 35-years, where 40% of the vines over 60 years old, and with many rows nearing a 100 years of age. Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Auxerrois and Muscat make up the varieties utilized by this estimable domaine.

The steep vineyard sites are surrounded by nature, and have been chemical free for nearly thirty-five. The grapes are hand harvested very late for Alsace, early to mid-October, yielding fully ripened fruit that lends to wines that offer a complexity of aromatics and flavors.
