How I started with Domaine Specht
I met Domaine Specht's owner, Denis Specht, during a wine tasting in Germany. I tasted his wines and really enjoyed them. I also liked the man and how he talks about his wines and his work.
It was very important for me to work with an Alsace producer since their grapes do not grow anywhere else in France.
