The family of Schlumberger comes from Souabe, a German region today a part of Bade Wurtemberg. Claus Schlumberger was the first to settle in Guebwiller in the XVI century under the period of the monks "The Princes Abbés". As he couldn't bear the monks' domination, he moved to Mulhouse, a free and protestant town. At his death, several Schlumberger family members came from Souabe to settle in Mulhouse. Like Claus himself, most of them were tanners. Several generations followed one another, and in the XVII Century, Schlumberger was one of the most prominent families in Mulhouse.

Product Notes
Originally named Tokay d’Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this type of vine is unrelated to the Hungarian Tokaji, which comes from the Furmint type of vine. Instead, it is a pinot from Burgundy that became known in Alsace in the 17th century. The name Pinot Gris has been generalized since 2007.
