Our Staff

A FAMILY BUSINESS
RICH OF 13 GENERATIONS


DOPFF AU MOULIN has been managed with due diligence. Its wealth consists of its plots and its stock and is based on the Family Estate but also on values transmitted from one generation to the other.

This estate is one of the few ones in Alsace that are family-owned to 100%, fully integrated and independent from vine to wine.

Today, Etienne-Arnaud Dopff is the Head of the company, prepared for the challenges of the 21st century: the global warming, the evolution of wine growing, excellence in the art of wine- and Crémant making.

« Deeply rooted, we pursue the Family’s path. And still, fiercely innovative and open to the world. »
Etienne-Arnaud Dopff
