Named after Marie-Thérèse Rolly and Louis Gassman, whose marriage brought about this successful winemaking partnership, the estate dates back to 1676. Although both his parents remain actively involved, the business is currently run by Pierre Gassmann, and he is in the process of converting to biodynamic viticulture.
The winery is hidden away in the sleepy village of Rorschwihr, in the northern tip of the Haut-Rhin departement, and the estate's vineyards are both here and in the neighbouring villages of Rodern and Bergheim.
Rolly Gassmann is widely regarded as residing in the top echelon of Alsatian producers and the proof is certainly in the pudding here. The palate is ripe and full, and retains pep, freshness and an attractive streak of minerality.

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan British cheeses. We are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe.
We have been cheese specialists for twenty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. We stock over a hundred hand-made British cheeses: from rediscovered gems such as Devon Oke, a hard but creamy cows’ milk cheese made to the original seventeenth century recipe, to Lord of the Hundreds, an unpasteurised mature sheep’s milk cheese made in the style of an Italian Pecorino.Read more about us >
