Situated at the southern end of the Alsace wine-growing region (10 miles south of Colmar), the Rouffach vineyards have been famous since Roman times. The Grand Ballon and the Petit Ballon, the two highest peaks in the Vosges, protect this region from rain-bearing west winds, resulting in an exceptionally sunny, dry climate – with just 500mm (20 inches) of rain, the annual precipitation rate is less than that of Nice. To this can be added the richness of our clay-limestone soils and calcareous sandstone subsoils, which are equally suited to each of the seven different permitted Alsace grape varieties: Riesling, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc.
