Meyer Jean-Luc & Bruno Winery

Located in Eguisheim, in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards, our 10 hectare (24,7 acres) estate is spread over 4 towns: Eguisheim, Herrlisheim, Pfaffenheim and Rouffach. This diversity of remarkable terroirs allows us to plant each grape variety in its best environment.

Since 3 generations, our exploitation is transmitted from father to son. In 2003, Bruno joined his father, Jean-Luc, and his grandfather, Ernest. For several years, they will pass on the family know-how necessary for the elaboration of great wines. Since 2014, it’s Bruno who runs the estate.

In 2010, after trials in the vineyards and a deep reflection, we decided to convert our vineyard into Organic Farming. This mode of culture seems essential to us, consistent with our principles of life, leaving its place to nature.

The human aspect of our job is very important to us. We sell 95% of our production to private customers. We organize, by appointment, tours of the cellar and vineyards to convey our passion. Our tasting cellar is open all year (Sundays and public holidays only in the morning – closed on Christmas and January 1st).

Our estate also offers a large capacity accommodation (10-14 people) and guest rooms. For more information please visit : www.relaisduvigneron.com

Terroir and Climate

The MEYER vineyards stretch over the sub-Vosgian foothills. Sheltered from oceanic influence by the Vosges Mountains, the vineyards are blessed with a semi-continental climate which is sunny, hot and dry (under 500 mm rainfall per year) and which favors excellent ripening of the grapes.

The month of September, with its warm days and cool nights enables slow ripening of the grapes and this develops the aromatic expression which is typical of such grape varieties.

Three types of terroirs

1

– The bottom of the slopes, composed of loess, silt and clay produce lighter, floral and very fine wines.

2

– The chalky soil which lies on limestone ground called « Muschelkalk ». The soil which covers these limestone blocks contains pebbles which are detached from the mother rock, as well as clay and silt. The « Persigberg », a slope with Grand Cru status, located west of the village facing south, is an example of this type of soil which produces extremely fine wines.

3

– Slightly chalky soils. This soil is composed of clay, sand and a mass of very hard, fallen, Triassic sandstone rocks which lie on a layer of very hard clay. The « Eichberg » which has Grand Cru status is composed of this kind of soil. These soils resist drought. They produce wines with great character and body, with slightly exotic aromas.
