Situated just outside the impressive medieval town of Eguisheim, the Beyer family have produced wine in these parts since 1580. The firm was formally founded in 1870 by Emile Beyer who was succeeded by a son and grandson, both named Léon Beyer and both mayors of Eguisheim in their day.
With significant Grand Cru vine-holdings in the communes of Eichberg and Pfersigberg and 23 hectares in total, this domaine has always championed impressive, dry wines that complement the famous gastronomy of the region. These days this important Alsatian house is ably run by Léon II's charismatic son Marc and grandson Yann. 75% of their production is exported.
