Orschwihr is a charming wine-growing village on the Alsatian wine route, nestled in a valley between the vineyard and arid hills steeped in a Mediterranean climate. At its origin, the richness of the village was founded on winemaking, which benefits from sun-exposed hillsides, especially in Bollenberg and Pfingstberg.
This prosperity is visible in the presence of numerous peasant houses dating from the XVIth-XVIIIth centuries, particularly in the lower part of the village, with the upper part housing the quarters for workers and small wine growers. A large part of the vineyard is classified among the "Grands Crus of Alsace (Vintages of Alsace)".
Its dry moors are known for their remarkable fauna and flora. The Colline du Bollenberg in particular benefits from exceptional sunlight all year round.
