The founders chose the name “Vieil Armand” because this was the name that was given to the top of Hartmanswillerkopf mountain. This mountain was an important battleground during the First World War (1914-1918).
La Cave du Vieil Armand is one of the smallest wine cellars in Alsace. It is located at the most southerly part of Alsace and marks the entrance to the Alsace wine route. The cave produces about 1.5 million bottles of wine a year from all of the most well known Alsatian grape varieties. It produces Grand Cru, Late Harvest, Selection de Grains Nobles and Cremant D’Alsace. Importantly Cremant represents around 3.2% of the total production at Cave de Vieil Armand.
The Cave du Vieil Armand was established to give an impetus to the wines of Southern Alsace. Today there are 80 members who are wine growers between Soultz and Wuenheim. Between them they share 140ha of vineyards, stretching from Cernay and Guebwiller to the foot of the Hartmanswillerkopf mountain.
