The Terroir is every wine-maker’s basic inheritance and heritage...

The vineyard covers 51 hectares WHICH WE HARVEST OURSELVES and is spread across 7 villages and 150 individual plots, making for a real patchwork of different terroirs !
This particular characteristic is a real bonus. The composition of soil in each plot, the orientation with regard to the sun and the exceptional micro-climate of Alsace are all factors that go into creating the diversity and richness of our wines.

Main soil types :

- Rorschwihr-Bergheim :
Calcareous brown soil on Early Jurassic and Oligocene Marl, on loess and hard limestone. Produces generous, powerful wines that are ideal for cellaring.

- Orschwiller-St Hippolyte-St Pierre :
Stony, glossic grey-brown podzolic soils. Acidic cambisols on stony alluvium. Calcic cambisols on deep loess subject to low levels of leaching.
Produces very aromatic wines, which may be cellared depending on the vintage in question.

Precise descriptions of the various combined soil classification may be found in the wine data sheets.
