Vineyard Info

The history of Wolfberger begins over a century ago. In 1902, winegrowers in the village of Eguisheim decided to join forces to create one of the first cooperatives in Alsace. Legend has it that a winegrower in Eguisheim found a young wolf in the Vosges mountains and tamed it to protect his vines from wild boar. as they can have a devastating effect on the yields due to the amount of grapes they can eat! The winegrower was named Wolfberger or "wolf shepherd" and gave his name to our cooperative cellar. United as one, pioneers in their field, they are continually innovating in order to ensure the development of the cellar and to preserve the typicity and quality of their wines.

With a clay-limestone subsoil, combined with a great exposure, the Grand Cru Hatschbourg has been favourable to vinegrowing since the Middle-Age. The wines of this terroir, especially the Gewurztraminer, develop a great typicity, great aromatic flavours and suitable for aging.
