The vines of Gewurztraminer of Gustave Lorentz are planted on various hill-sides around the little village of Bergheim with a predominance of heavy soils compound by clay and limestone. The vineyard extends along the south side of the hillock Grasberg, steeply sloping at an altitude of 220-320 metres. At the heart of the Ribeauvillé geological rift, limestone and marls from the Jurassic period overlap and, underneath consists of red calcareous clay soils that are very stony, shallow and rich in fossils. The south-facing exposure, the remoteness of the Vosges mountains, the steep slope and the Bergenbach stream down the hill all foster a warm and temperate micro climate with very regular temperatures and humidity.
