The Alsace vineyards are situated on the foothills of the Vosges Mountains. They extend over a distance of 160 km, from Cleebourg in the North to Thann in the South, on the fracture zone between lowland and mountain. A special feature that generates a great variety of subsoils. Under protection of the Vosges Mountains, these vineyards have the lowest average yearly amount of rainfall of all French wine regions.
The Alsace AOC was only created in 1962. It represents 72% of the production, the Crémant d’Alsace Appellation 24% and the Alsace Grand Cru Appellation 4%.
Alsace AOC consists of 9 single grape wines: Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Muscat, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Chasselas and Auxerrois, and of 2 blends: Edelzwicker and Gentil.
Alsace AOC has been completed by two geographical indications in the meantime (municipal designations and localities).
« As our grapes are being harvested at the Estate or by carefully selected contract growers, our wines are an Authenticity Guarantee for each Alsatian grape variety. » Etienne-Arnaud Dopff
