Description

SOIL, CULTURE & HARVEST

Bordered to the South by the small city of Ribeauvillé and to the East by the Grand Cru Geisberg, this place-name benefits from an orientation South South-West which, combined with a rather steep slope, gives it an excellent exposure to the sun at the time of ripening.
A clayey and often quite stony soil is home to this vineyard located at an altitude of 270 to 350 m.
The vineyard is cultivated based upon Alsatian tradition and
“AOC Alsace Grand Cru” specifications are followed.
Harvesting is done by hand – pressing is carefully undertaken with pneumatic presses.
