- Sparr family has 12 generations of winemakers, family owner of a domain of 30 hectares today. Discover our vineyards, our family tradition with our philosophy Sparr Pierre, owner and winemaker, and his son Charles Sparr.
The wines of Charles Sparr give voice to the grape variety, the soils and the vintage they are grown. The vineyard variously expresses itself each year, according to its location, its microclimate and the care of the wine-grower, in order to give birth to each new vintage. The specificity and the signature of the wines of the Sparr family lie in the will to create authentic wines, each vintage’s special character being purely related to its conception, its vine own expression, its soil and the climate of the year of its growth.
