Rolly Gassmann is a Domaine like noone else. It is located to Rorschwihr, a sleepy village on the northern rim of Haut-Rhin.

Rolly Gassmann offers no wines from Grand Grands Cru terroirs, but from a set of very good Lieux-dits such as Silberberg, Muenchreben and Plaenzerreben. The vineyards are located in Rorschwihr and the neighbouring Rodern and Bergheim and exhibit large geological differences. However, at Rolly-Gassmann it is the varieties rather than the terroirs that are in focus.

Rolly Gassmann has a unique style. The wines are small masterpieces with very good definition. They all carry the signature of Rolly Gassmann, a certain shameless, velvety sweetness. The fruit is rich and Rolly-Gassmann manages to balance the fruit with a vibrant acidity to form seductive wines that melt on the palate.
