One of the Alsace (Haut-Rhin) sites classified as Grand Cru within the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. It was first mentioned in documents in 1250, and since 1830 the wines have been marketed under the name of the site. If there were a Premier Cru Classé, it would deserve Saering. The vineyards cover 27 hectares on siliceous clay marl soil in the municipality of Guebwiller. They are mainly planted with Riesling, as well as Muscat Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris. Well-known producers are Dirler-Cadé, Joseph Loberger, Eric Rominter and Domaines Schlumberger.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
