During this time he was recognized as one of the most famous producers of white wine in the world. Agriculture Deiss has 27 hectares of vineyards located in 9 municipalities.

Project Jean-Michel Deiss is perceived by many of his neighbors as a radical and even revolutionary. In fact, the goal is to return to the Dies methods, styles and traditions that have made the wines of Alsace, famous since the Middle Ages until the end of the XIX century. Some vines planted vineyards Dies tight enough - from 8 to 12 thousand per hectare, but treated so as to reduce the number of clusters. As a result, the average income is only 40 hectoliters per hectare, and the vineyards of large cru - 25-30, which is half the average yield in Alsace. Grapes were collected two weeks and gently pressed for 24 hours. When vinification only natural yeast fermentation begins naturally at low temperatures and lasts four to six weeks. Light wines are vinified in stainless steel tanks, more powerful - in large wooden barrels. After alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation is not used, the wines are aged on the lees for six to eight months. Due to the low yield, cautious and careful treatment of wine Dice have a wonderful fresh, intense flavor and perfectly balanced taste.
