It was in 1871 that Jean Dirler settled in the tiny village of Bergholtz and founded Vins Dirler. Bergholtz and its 1,000 inhabitants are tucked up in the lower hills of the Vosges Mountains 25 km south of the city of Colmar in the Upper Rhine department of southern Alsace. Today the Domaine is run by the latest Jean Dirler, who represents the 5th generation, and his wife Ludivine whom he married in 1998. Close to half of the Dirler-Cade vineyards (42%) are in the Grands Crus of Saering, Spiegel, Kessler and Kitterle. In addition the Domaine also has plantings in the 5 lieuxdits known as Belzbrunnen, Schwarzberg, Bux, Schimberg and Bollenberg.
