One of the Alsace (Bas-Rhin) sites classified as Grand Cru within the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. It is one of the oldest vineyards in Alsace and was already used for wine growing in Roman times. A document from 1064 describes the high quality of the wines. The vineyards on the steeply sloping southern slopes cover six hectares of vines on a sloping terroir interspersed with granite in the municipality of Andlau. Here, mainly Riesling is cultivated as well as Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris. Well-known producers are André Durrmann, Domaine Klipfel, Marc Kreydenweiss, Charles Moritz and Guy Wach.
