Katzenthal et Niedermorschwihr
Sommerberg stretches over the foot of the Trois-Épis mountain, to the south of Katzenthal and to the north of Niedermorschwihr. Located on a very steep hill (45°), this locality is oriented directly to the south and rises up to nearly 400m in altitude.
The two-mica granite, called Turckheim granite, in a very advanced state, produced these mineral-rich granite arenas, highly suited for vineyards.
Over these 28.36ha of this locality, all the Alsace grape varieties grow happily, especially Riesling.
Niedermorschwihr planted vineyards as of 1214 and the name Sommerberg already jealously delimited a part of the wine-growing area during the 17th century.
The Sommerberg Grand Cru Riesling, very typical of this area, will express its true potential after having been kept for one to three years.
