There is no question that the area around Riquewihr is blessed with every possible natural attribute for successful vine cultivation. The climate is such that the grapes ripen slowly. To the west, the Vosges mountains minimize oceanic influences, whilst to the north, the famous Schoenenbourg hill protects the site from cold north winds.

The amazing variety of geological formations in Alsace makes these vineyards some of the most complex in the world. The one at Riquewihr is located on one of the main fissure areas in Alsace. This veritable mosaic of soils and sub-soils (marl, limestone, gypsum, clay, sandstone…..) means that the wines reflect the various types of terroir.
