Lérisa x Domaine Bott Frères

The Bott Frères Estate


Located in Ribeauvillé, a charming village on the most beautiful wine route in Alsace, this is where the Domaine Bott Frères is located®. Spread over 20 hectares, the House was founded in 1835. Passionate and in love with the land, they pay particular attention to respect for the environment. They combine with nature and work in complementarity with plants. Their cultivation is both productive and healthy, from vine to glass. Each year, the harvest is all exclusively done by hand. These traditional techniques associated with the passion of the terroir give remarkable wines of very high quality. They produce in particular great vintages.

The beginning of a wonderful collaboration


After the launch of our crowdfunding campaign last May, we were contacted by Nicole Bott, winemaker, intrigued by grape skin. Following our telephone exchanges, we had agreed to meet within their Estate.

Driven for many years by her passion, wine. Nicole was, like many, surprised to learn of the new appearance of the grape marc and to discover it thus, metamorphosed into a handbag. Iit is true that it can be difficult to imagine the grape in this new form. But beyond the making of wine, here it is multiplying and presenting itself in a new sector of activity.
From there, we were considering the potential for a collaboration.

From the moment we received our first collection, we went to their incredible estate. Nestled on the heights of the village of Ribeauvillé, we discovered a breathtaking landscape. A vast expanse of plots stretched as far as the eye could see. We were welcomed by Nicole, her husband Laurent and the entire Bott family. The visit started in the bottling workshop. Although this step is one of the last before marketing, it is on the same level, in order to limit handling during loading. We continue the visit accompanied by a glass of Crémant du Domaine, more precisely the QV Paul. Between elegant fine bubbles and buttery, brioche notes, this crémant is a real sensory journey.
So after our tasting, we sat down and presented our collection. Discovering the amazed eyes of the people in front of us, when they see the grape skin, is always a moment full of emotions. Captivated by this plant material, which both concentrates its originality through its raw material and seduces through its visuals. Conquered by this material, Nicole and her collaborators have selected our collection of pouches to present them in their shop. The Domaine Bott boutique is delicate and refined, in a spirit of elegance and sobriety. They market their wine there, as well as accessories related to grapes. These are works often made by local artisans.

Thus, we continue our visit, this time one foot lower, in the cellar of the vineyard. A total immersion in the heart of the magic of wine making.Between sharing and conviviality, the visit is led by Nicole who reveals the history of the vineyard, the cultivation of the grapes and the different stages of wine making. A remarkable oenological visit that we highly recommend. Thank you Nicole for having refined our knowledge.

We are delighted with this collaboration, which does not end like this, indeed, we are regularly invited to participate in events organized within the Domain. These occasions around wine allow us to present our collection as well as to meet our customers. These are wonderful moments of sharing and conviviality.
Thank you to the entire Bott family for your attention and kindness. A wine-growing family in love and passionate about the terroir.
