An interview with Étienne et Caroline Loew

  • Tell us about your estate and winery.

We established our activities in 1996 and this also was our first vintage under Domaine Loew's name. We have been certified biodynamic since 2007, Demeter since 2012, and Biodyvin since 2017.

 

  • What is the style of your wines?

Our focus is to make wines representative of their terroirs and adequate for gastronomic tables.

 

  • Past, Present and Future

Past: professor in a farming and oenology school for about 10 years
Present: making beautiful wines
Future: keeping on making beautiful wines, hopefully with my daughters

 

  • Something about yourself?

I have a penchant for ice-cream and desserts. I swim a lot, in order to eat a lot of them.

 

  • What are you the most proud of?

Our two daughters: Mathilde and Marguerite.
