A hope of cooperation in the service of the quality

36 vignerons from Ingersheim and neighbouring villages were faced with serious economic problems; in order to benefit from their vineyards and the skills handed down throughout preceding generations, the vignerons decided to join together in a show of solidarity by creating the Cave d'Ingersheim, better known today as the Cave Jean Geiler.
