The traditional “Proufdag” 2023 (meaning tasting day) of Domaines Vinsmoselle will take place on Monday, May 1 from 10 am to 7 pm at the Caves du Sud winery in Remerschen.
This year there is another reason to celebrate: the 75th anniversary of Caves du Sud!
For this occasion, Domaines Vinsmoselle will present you an anniversary wine, a Pinot Blanc from Remerschen with a special look. A magnum version in a limited quantity of 75 pieces, will be sold exclusively during the “Proufdag”.
Throughout the day, their winemakers, cellar masters and collaborators will be delighted to offer you a taste of the 2022 vintage in a family-friendly atmosphere, with entertainment for children and adults, as well as local food trucks and stalls. It will be a unique opportunity to talk to the winegrowers and producers about their passion, their craft and their vines, and also about their efforts to promote sustainable viticulture. They are looking forward to presenting you the fruit of their work through all their brands: Les Vignerons de Domaines Vinsmoselle, Château Edmond de la Fontaine, VIGNUM and POLL-FABAIRE.
2022 was marked by extreme drought and record days of sunshine, with the sunniest summer in Luxembourg since 1947. These conditions spelled a very early harvest at the beginning of September. In addition to the base wines for crémant production and the “vins de cru”, a straw wine was also vinified this year, with excellent results.
The wine cooperative now has young wines in the cellar that have all finished their fermentation process. Some are already filtered, and others have already been bottled or are ageing slowly in tanks on fine lees.
Due to last year’s climate conditions, the 2022 vintage has been produced in small quantities, but it is of excellent quality and has a distinct taste.
