Located at the foot of the Vosges, the Alsatian vineyard is made up of a mosaic of terroirs, each giving a particular color to the grape variety that grows there. The particularity of our climate is due to the geographical position of the region: the Black Forest to the east, the Vosges to the west. The landscape is composed of a succession of hills between 200 and 400m of altitude. The natural barrier of the Vosges protects the vineyard and contributes to the particular climate of Alsace.

Nos Lieux-Dits

OUR lieux-dits

For the past few years, we have been working on 3 different locations: Rebgarten, Roemerberg and Vogelgarten. 

Gamme Terroir.jpg

The Rebgarten (Garden of Grapes, translation from German) is a small vineyard located in the commune of Bennwihr. Mainly made of granitic sand, the vines are south-facing which allows them to benefit from a favorable sunshine. In this area, we only plant Riesling, the grape variety that best expresses the mineral dimension of the terroir.

The Hill of the Romans, the Roemerberg of its name, is also a locality belonging to the village of Bennwihr. Facing east & south-east, the clay-limestone soil is ideal for Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris.

Located on the heights of Sigolsheim, the Vogelgarten (Bird Garden) is a sandstone limestone soil. Facing due south, this area benefits from an optimal period of sunshine which translates in our Gewürztraminer by a beautiful roundness.

Nos Grands Crus


Since 1975, Alsace has also listed fifty-one Grands Crus, which differ by their privileged terroir, a particular geology, a specific climate as well as a unique exposure; all forming an exceptional agreement. 

Grand Cru Mambourg


Facing due south on the heights of Sigolsheim, the Grand Cru Mambourg represents a surface area of 61.85 hectares. This terroir benefits from an optimal sunshine duration with a calci-magnesic type soil. The Mambourg vintages are very typical, of a beautiful concentration carried on the roundness and of long guard.

Grand Cru Mandelberg


The Grand Cru Mandelberg (la Colline des Amandiers) shelters the village of Mittelwihr from the northerly winds. This 22-hectare terroir faces south & southwest on marl-limestone soil. The presence of almond trees, rare shrubs at this latitude, testifies to the very favorable climate. Planted with Riesling grapes, the wines develop pronounced fruitiness and exquisite finesse.

Grand Cru Marckrain


To the south of the village of Bennwihr, the Grand Cru Marckrain stretches along the wine route over an area of 53.35ha. Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris are predominantly planted here, benefiting from east & south-east exposure on marl-limestone soil. In the bottle, we find the acidity typical of the terroir combined with a well-developed expression of aromas.

Grand Cru Schlossberg


Grand Cru Schlossberg lies on the heights of Kientzheim, at an altitude of 200-300m. With its steep slopes, this terroir requires terraced cultivation. Sun exposure is due south, and the soil is granitic. Most of the 80.28ha are planted with Riesling. The wines produced on these acidic terroirs are always very expressive in their youth.
