The name `Agape` means `love` in Greek, the universal love which we receive in its purest form, with no strings attached. Created in 2008 by Vincent and Isabelle Sipp, Domaine Agape brings together 10ha of vineyard located on the best slopes of Hunawihr, Ribeuville and Riquewihr – well known for Agilo-calcaire soils producing structured wines with good aging potential. They are well represented on the prestige Grand Crus of Schoenenbourg, Rosacker and Osterberg. All work in the vineyard is done by hand with meticulous attention to detail. allowing the fruit to be the main expression.

The white clay and limestone rich vineyard produces full aromatic Gewürztraminer with the subtle perfume of rose petals, lychees and spicy cinnamon notes. A complex palate with lots of ripe apricot, exotic fruits and spicy characters typical of a Gewürztraminer wine. A dry acidity balances the tropical fruit and mineral nuances add depth to the palate to lead into a long and refreshing finish. 13.5% 750ml
