Alsace Grand Cru Muenchberg
It's found on soil formed from volcanic ash 250 million years ago.
On soil formed by volcanic ash 250 million years ago, the Muenchberg absorbs and retains the sunshine. This stony, sandy soil provides excellent drainage and rapid warming, as the ground in this small valley is protected from the rain. The Muenchberg terroir is perfect for Riesling. The nobility of the varietal is due to its late-ripening character and a rare, real fullness from the exceptional terroir which, while unfertile, helps the vines produce fewer grapes but with a concentration of qualities
Our Alsace Grand Cru Muenchberg Wolfberger comes in RIESLING.
