Across the centuries, the Domaine ALLIMANT-LAUGNER perpetuates the traditions given by the two families of winemakers. The Allimant-Laugner family is made up of three generations that produce 12 hectares of vineyards under sustainable cultivation at the foot of the Haut-Koenigsbourg. Our vines benefit from a great diversity of soils, heavy clay-limestone, granite, gneiss as well as our Grand Cru “Praelatenberg”.
The Alsatian vineyard is located between mountain and plain, it forms a long strip of more than 120 kilometers long and 2 to 5 kilometers wide, for a total surface of 15000 ha. A semi-continental climate reigns in Alsace, characterized by cold winters, frost risks, spring frosts. And hot summers – interspersed with violent storms – with a lot of sunshine, around 1700h / year. Protected by the Vosges in the West, and therefore oceanic influences, the rainfall does not generally exceed 700mm per year
