A family of winegrowers in Colmar


(1888 - 1973)

After a quarter of a century spent in Morocco, mainly in market gardening, Martin Jund, the 5th of the name, (1888-1973) and his wife, née Kopp, took over the operation of the Alsatian family vineyard in 1948, and bought numerous plots on the Hardt of Colmar which they managed to group into four large lots with a total area of 7 hectares.


(1924 - 2008)

When Martin Jund died in 1973, his daughter Annie Jund, born in 1924, separated from her husband Jean-Pierre Ducros, born in 1924, took over the estate. Farm manager from 1973 to 1980, she perpetuated the vineyard and opted, in 1970, for bottling, in the family house, rue de l'Ange, one of the first to display its beautiful half-timberings, at the time when the plastering was falling. , ashamed of the particularism of the local habitat.



Since 1980, André Ducros, born in 1956, the son of Annie Jund, and his wife Myriam Wolfersperger, born in 1956, originally from Michelbach near Cernay, have taken over the operation. Both, holders of a BTAG obtained in Rouffach, currently work 18 ha, from Turkheim to Benwihr, via Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Kaysersberg and Kientzheim. The farm, located in the heart of Colmar, where the vat room is located, the storage and the sales cellar, doubles as an activity of rooms to rent, a not so ancillary activity, since it represents approximately a third of the income, the wine activity constituting the other two thirds.The Jund sell well every year , a year around 60,000 bottles are sold almost exclusively at the estate. part of the production is delivered in organic grapes and part in bulk.







The Junds are known for the famous quote from 1630, from the Colmar customs chronicle: “In September, Martin Jund, winemaker, discovered, in his Wettolsheim vineyard, a bunch of grapes that were the length of an ell minus a quarter. Part of the grapes were already ripe, while the other part was in flower.”

The anecdote obviously applies to the observed singularity. It also recalls a general notion of the medieval era which continues into the modern era. All around the city, enclosed within its ramparts, are arranged in a concentric manner, and sometimes in an amphitheater if the terrain is suitable, the fields and vineyards accessible on foot, the time of a round trip during the day. The Jund from Austria, who arrived in Alsace at the beginning of the 16th century, are no exception to this rule.
