The Kaysersberg valley, protected from the winds, welcomes the Furstentum hillside at its heart. Facing south-southwest, it is an island of calciphilous Mediterranean vegetation.

The brown, limestone soil has a stony, skeletal, filtering structure, with outcropping of the bedrock. These are marl-limestone-sandstone terroirs of the Lower Dogger covered at the end with Tertiary conglomerates.

The slope is steep (37%) and optimizes sunshine on a soil that accumulates heat and water. The conditions are ideal for producing a great wine. The Furstentum has 30.50 ha planted with Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris d'Alsace.

The Furstentum is already mentioned in 1330 in the inventory of vines belonging to the convent of Basel.

A wine for keeping, Furstentum is of great finesse and remarkable aromatic power.
