The wine growing area in Alsace is situated on the east side of Vosges, in two departments : Bas Rhin in the North and Haut Rhin in the South.
This vine area benefits from a particular microclimate. The mountains of Vosges act as a natural shield against all kinds of weather (winds, rainfall). The pluviometry is one of the most feeble in France. The soil offers a very varied assortment of rocks (granite, limestone, gneiss, schist, sandstone...). The vine area is around 37065 acres.
