Maison Mortiz-Prado has to be one of the newest and most exciting Alsace wineries to launch in the recent years. Winemaker Ghislain Moritz studied and cut his teeth for five years in Mercurey before moving to Portugal and then the Carpathian mountains in Romania to work for the then relatively unknown Avincis winery. It was in 2009 that he met Angela, a Columbian studying in Paris, and together they returned to Romania to successfully grow the Avincis offering. With the knowledge and a passion to start their own project they bought 5 ha of vines in AlbŽ (the only mountainous vineyards of Alsace) and in 2018 returned to France with a young family. They work the 450m high vineyards by hand, where they grows Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir organically. And only one vintage in, with the unique Schist soil, altitude and a creative use of skin contact, burgundy barrels and amphorae, they are already creating exceptionally fresh, powerful and elegant wines. Watch this space. Very closely.
