As with their wines, the quality of the fruits is essential. The fruits must be harvested when they've reached the perfect stage of ripeness in order to preserve the fruit's essence, which is key to producing the best brandy and capturing the richness of the local terroir.
The abundant orchards and fruit of the Alsace region give way to making brandies that have become an integral part of the Maison Willm tradition and heritage. It is not uncommon for winegrowers to have fruit trees in addition to their vines. Over time, this tradition has naturally made its way into the Maison Willm traditions.
