More about La Couronne d'Or: the vineyards of the Golden Crown:
The "Couronne d'Or" is a "crown" with 19 precious stones, decorating the head of the old fortification of Mount Scharrach.
For more than 1400 years, grape vines have been cultivated in this region near Strasbourg. The vineyards stretch over 1500 hectares, with four special "Grand Cru" locations: Steinklotz in Marlenheim, Altenberg in Bergbieten, Engelberg in Dahlenheim and Altenberg in Wolxheim.
A tour throught the "Couronne d'Or" means feeling the strength and finesse, the complexity and subtlety, the robustness and generosity and the richness and simlicity of Alsatian wines and their soil of origin.
