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.

This Pinot Noir is a selection of our best vineyards, planted predominantly on limestone soils.  We treat our Pinot Noir La Louve as we do our Grand Crus, limiting yields at a maximum of 55hl/ha and only harvested by hand.
