The «FELSBERG» wine estate

Half of our vineyards are to be found round Bernardvillé, often in steep slopes.The other half is located round Epfig where Simone comes from.

We have to take care of about 50000 vines which, were they in one row, it would be about 50 km.long. For the manual tasks alone, we make more than 700 km on foot every year, going from one vine to the next.

There, Sylvaner, Klevner, and Riesling grow on schist soil, the oldest sedimentary rocks to be found in Alsace. It comes from clay, which turned into stone in the earth's crust.
