Münchberg is akin to a south-facing amphitheater nestled in a valley at the base of the Vosges Mountains, located in the town of Nothalten. Its character is shaped by the nearby Ungersberg, a substantial mountain to the west, acting as a protective shield against maritime influences. Thus, we regard the Vosges Mountains as the final defense against oceanic effects and a gateway to Central Europe, characterized by its continental climate. This 1.65-hectare plot boasts a distinctive blend of pink sandstone, volcanic deposits, and an underlying limestone base in the eastern section, a rarity in Alsace. Situated at an optimal elevation of 250 to 300 meters, it enjoys protection from excessive heat. Following a meticulous manual harvest and a lengthy, gentle pressing, the de-stemmed grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks without the addition of commercial yeasts. Aging takes place over 11 months on the lees in steel tanks, and the wine is bottled in September with minimal sulfur addition and without filtration.
