Dopff & Irion


From one generation to the next, the DOPFF and IRION families, have made the most out of their heritage

From one generation to the next, the DOPFF and IRION families, whose origins date back to the 16th century, have made the most out of their heritage: the vineyard and Riquewihr castle. At present, the historic edifice is the headquarters of Maison Dopff & Irion. Created in 1945, this company elaborates wine from a 27-hectare vineyard within the district of Riquewihr, as well as the 5 hectares, belonging to Clos Chateau d’Isenbourg. This is a fairly large size, in light of the fragmentation of the properties in Alsace (60% of farmers own surface areas, representing less than one hectare).

After World War II, René Dopff and the widow Irion, two prestigious names of the vine-growing sector in Riquewihr, joined forces, thereby initiating the start to Dopff & Irion. One of their first decisions was that of acquiring the historic castle of Riquewihr. René Dopff was an emblematic and prestigious producer, who influenced the Alsace wine industry during most of his life. Since the foundation of the winery, the harvest had always been done by hand and the wines are crafted using the utmost care. The winery is certified HVE 3 and Bee-friendly.
