Alsace Grand Cru Pfersigberg
The Pfersigberg Grand Cru results from a singular hot, dry micro-climate.
On the fringes of Eguisheim, with a sheltered east-southeast exposure at the foot of Trois Châteaux, the Pfersigberg Grand Cru benefits from a hot and dry micro-climate, with soil that is predominantly limestone-marl. This terroir is renowned for its early-ripening character that creates fine, elegant wines with big, rich aromas, particularly in the varieties that tend to be fragrant, such as the Pinot Gris, the Riesling and the Muscat. Their perfume, fruitiness, body and their aptitude for aging make this one of the most remarkable Alsace vineyards.
Our Alsace Grand Cru Pfersigberg Wolfberger comes in two varieities, GEWURZTRAMINER and PINOT GRIS.
Did you know ?
“Pfersigberg” means “peach tree slope” in English but we don’t know if peaches really ever grew here. According to legend, it was from here that the Romans extended their winegrowing in Alsace. However, the first written mention of this terroir would appear only in the 16th century, and it was only in the 20th century, at the first Alsace Wine Fair in Colmar, that the winegrowers put forward a Pfersigberg.
