Both coming from a wine-producing family from generation to generation, the Eblin and Fuchs have been related since 1956 after the union of Madeleine Fuchs (pronounce Foux) and Henri Joseph Eblin. The descendants of the Eblin family can be traced back to 1294, date of the arms registration. The Fuchs family came to Zellenberg in 1615 and began their winery activity the same year.
The sons, Jose Henri and Christian have decided to keep on with the wine-making tradition. They are the current owners of the company.
This grape picking scene was taken right after the war. In this photo, we can see the grandfather Arthur Fuchs pouring his bucket full of grapes in the back basket. The second person in the right is the grandmother Barbara and the little girl with the German wirehaired pointer Rigo is our mother Madeleine. In the background stands the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle. The photographer is René Deiber (who later manager in the Fischer brewery in Schiltigheim), it’s my grandfathers fellow from the war. His wife Elise is the first one to the right.
