Domaine Aime Stentz is a family wine estate in the village Wettolsheim in Alsace in France. Today it covers some 15 hectares of vineyards. Sometimes they seem to prefer to write they name of the winery as Domaine Aiméstentz. Several people of the family are involved in the winery: Lous Stentz in the vineyards, Etienne Stentz in the wine cellar, Jocelyne Stentz with clients and the restaurant and Fabienne Stentz with foreign clients. The fifth generation Stentz, Marc, is progressively taking over the responsibility for the winemaking.

As many growers in Alsace Stentz makes a wide range of wines. The wines are mainly white of course, ranging from very dry to very sweet vendanges tardives and even selection de grains nobles. They also make smaller quantities of red wine (from pinot noir), rosé, and sparkling (crémant d’alsace). They have a prestige cuvée called Clos du Vicius Romain from the Hengst grand cru vineyard.

Domaine Aime Stentz uses the classic Alsatian grape varieties: sylvaner, riesling, muscat, pinot gris, and gewurztraminer. They are moving towards biodynamic viticulture and plan to become certified in 2011.
