Presentation of the vineyard
The Deutz wine house was created in Aÿ, back in 1838 by two wine merchants named William Deutz and Pierre-Hubert Geldermann, both originating from Aachen in Germany. Together they purchased land and became vintners. Mixing technical knowledge, focus on export and ambition, they managed to create a quality reputation abroad long before the beginning of the 1900s. The vineyard is located in Aÿ and to some extent in the notorious "Côte des Blancs".
