Of all the medieval villages in Alsace, Riquewihr may be the most touristic, Eguisheim the most decorated and Mittelbergheim the most calm, but Geuberschwihr is certainly the most genuine.
Geuberschwihr is a charming villages to which too few visitors find their way. The village is situated on a plateau on the spectacular road connecting Husseren-les-Chateaux, Voegtlinshoffen, Geuberschwihr and Pfaffenheim. Do not miss the church, built on oak pillars, though of as more stable than a stone foundation.
The pride is Grand Cru Goldert that carries a very good reputation for both Riesling and Muscat. In addition, Zind-Humbrecht makes an excellent Gewurztraminer from this 45 ha vineyard. The microclimate is favourable as Goldert is tucked into the protecting Voges. Goldert hosts Clos Saint-Imer, a 5 ha property owned by Ernest Burn.
Geuberschwihr is more than a wine village, as it has nurseries and other businesses related to agriculture. Until the 1960´ it was common that winemaking was only one component of the farming, and combined with production of vegetables, milk, eggs.
The vintners of Geuberschwihr has a joint cooperative with Pfaffenheim.
