The Silberberg or ‘the Silver Mountain’ named after its type of soil, is a place located near Rorschwihr.

A long time ago, there were once silver mines here. This small piece of land on a hill with a perfect south-east exposure doesn’t yield more than 1200 bottles per year. But, it brings out the best of this rich and mineral soil on which the grapes grow.
