Tour of 9km (3:30h) through the vineyard of Dorlisheim where some panels describe the works of the winegrower. The calcareous dry hills propose a big variety of plants, tlike wild orchids. DORLISHEIM’S VINEYARDS The vines cover a succession of south-facing slopes on a clay-chalk soil. Sheltered by the upper Vosges, they have the benefit of a micro-climate. These natural conditions make the land particularly suitable for growing vines, and have enabled Dorlisheim’s winegrowers to develop the full range of Alsace wines. Sylvaner grapes produce a light wine with fruity notes and a freshness in the mouth. Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois vines are planted on the most loamy soils; they produce wines that are supple, generous and easy to drink. Tokay-Pinot Gris is an early maturing variety, used to make extremely high-quality wines that combine a deep bouquet with a powerful, heady structure. Riesling vines are very happy on stony slopes. The grapes produce wines of great elegance with floral aromas and a generous feel in the mouth. These wines have excellent potential for ageing. Gewurztraminer vines are particularly suited to the clay-chalk soils here, producing wines with a fiercely intense bouquet of roses and spices, and a generous, smooth character that expresses itself best after being kept for two or three years. Pinot Noir grapes produce a rosé wine with all the characteristics of Alsace wines.
