Bordering the edges of the municipality of Eguisheim, the locality of Eichberg Grand Cru faces the south-east at an altitude between 220 and 340m. This wine-growing area, at the foot of three castles, is sheltered by the foothills of the Vosges and boasts a particularly dry and warm microclimate, as the amount of rain registered is currently the lowest in the region of Colmar.
The terroir of this locality is essentially composed of limestone conglomerate and marl from the Oligocene period. Colluvium of the same nature incorporate scree and sandstone pebbles, giving an often siliceous, rather clayey, stone-rich soil.
The Eichberg Grand Cru has 57.62 ha. Its soil and climate quality are perfectly suited for Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Alsace Pinot Gris.
The exceptional quality of Eichberg wine has been recognized for a very long time. Indeed, according to the historian Médard Barth, the Abbey of Marbach, which was founded in the 11th century, collected taxes on the wines in the locality of Eissche which today is known as Eichberg.
Boasting a great opulence, the terroir wines express themselves with finesse and remarkable fruitiness. This Cru is unquestionably predisposed for a long life, while exalting its typicity and aromas.
