Our vineyard covers twelve hectares and seven communes, namely KATZENTHAL, AMMERSCHWIHR, INGERSHEIM, RIQUEWIHR, KIENTZHEIM, COLMAR and BENNWIHR. The nature of the soils, the relief of the land and levels of exposure are therefore very varied. The soils range from poor quality filtering alluvial deposits (Colmar) to rich, deep clayey sandstone land (RIQUEWIHR), with granite in between (KATZENTHAL). The reliefs range from the flat (COLMAR) to the very steeply sloping (KATZENTHAL). The degrees of exposure are also very varied, ranging from the cooler western part which is suitable for the earlier vine types to the south-facing part which is very warm and sunny. This great variety of terroirs constitutes a distinctiveness and a richness in relation to may of the French vineyards. Read less
