Vine

Our plot of Grand Cru Schoenenbourg planted in 1997 provides its first grapes for the great appellation in 2015. Exposed on the south-eastern slope of the hill of the Schoenenbourg our vines are at 280 m of altitude with a slight slope. On a limestone soil that retains the waters, we create a riesling of great aromatic complexity. In the vineyard there is a total natural grass; We realize a Guyot size double pushing by leaving 5 eyes per vine shoot. Harvesting is done exclusively by a regional team.

Wine
