The vineyard and its terroirs

We are 100 % estate winegrowers, we vinify exclusively our own harvest. We buy neither grapes, nor juice, nor wines (Alsatians winegrowers represents only 22% of the regional production).
Located on the dizzy heights of the hills of Guebwiller, in southern Alsace, with slopes reaching 50° and at an altitude going from 250 to 390 metres, our mountain-side vineyard is surely one of the most breathtaking in Alsace.
Its excellent southwest, south, south east exposure ensures it perfect sun exposure..
Guebwiller is the only spot in Alsace producing 4 Grands Crus. Half of our vineyard, that is to say 70 hectares, consists of these unique “terroirs”.
The wines of our Grands Crus portray, from year to year, the ancient memory of the stones of our land.
The Vosges sandstone, on the edge of the mountain,produces subtle nuances: plots located anly a few meters from each other can produce very different wines.

The “ALSACE GRAND CRU” appellation gathers the 51 best Alsatian “terroirs”.
This classification appeared in 1983 by the “Institut National des Appellations d’Origine” (INAO) based on similar qualitative criteria to those applied to Burgundy: geology, exposure and microclimate.
In 1983, only 25 had been defined, including the 4 located in Guebwiller (25 other Grands Crus have been defined in 1992).
The Domaine Schlumberger, with 50% of its area planted with Grands Crus have resolutely decided to bear proudly the colours of their exceptional terroirs.
