Located 60 kilometers north of Strasbourg, Cave de Cléebourg’s vineyards cover almost 200 hectares of the Nothern Vosges Mountains in the Alsace region of France. Wine production was introduced into the Cléebourg area by Dominican monks from neighboring Wissembourg as early as the 9th century A.D. Except for the phylloxera outbreak that swept through Europe in late 1800s and the devastation caused by retreating armies in the last days of World War II, wine production has continued to this day.
Many of Cave de Cléebourg’s vineyards share favorable south and southwest facing slopes in the villages of Cléebourg, Rott, Oberhoffen, Steinseltz and Riedseltz. Soil types in the region range from sandy loam to clay to marl, attributes that Cave de Cléebourg’s winemaker uses to craft a broad range of wines with qualities that closely mirror the area’s diverse geographic heritage.
