Moenchberg (Alsace)

One of the Alsace Grand Cru classified sites within the Alsace Grand Cru appellation (Bas-Rhin). It must not be confused with the Grand Cru vineyard Muenchberg in the municipality of Nothalten. The Moenchberg belonged to the possession of the Benedictine order in Altdorf until 1097 and was then taken over by inhabitants of the community of Eichhoffen. The vineyards comprise 12 hectares of vines on limestone marl soil in the municipalities of Andlau and Eichhoffen. A very dry and hot microclimate prevails. The location is particularly suitable for Riesling, but also for Pinot Gris. Well known producers are Armand Gilg, Domaine André & Remy Gresser, Marc Kreydenweiss, Charles Moritz, Marcel Schlosser and Guy Wach. In Germany Mönchberg is a common name used in several growing regions.
