Eguisheim, a medieval village
Ranking since 2004 among "the Most Beautiful Villages of France"
The House Léon Baur is an 10 hectares family estate located in a medieval village called Eguisheim (Haut-Rhin), known as the birthplace of winegrowing in Alsace. Eguisheim also got four stars for its streets and buildings decked out with flowers and it was twice awarded the “Grand Prix National du fleurissement”.
In 1002, the family of the Counts of Eguisheim gave birth to Bruno of Eguisheim, who was to become a Pope in 1048 in Rome under the name of Leo IX.
The surrounding ramparts with their fabulously coloured and flower-decked houses as well as the castle of the Counts makes that village an important scene in the history of Alsace and a fine jewel in the Alsatian tourism.
It is at the heart of these medieval ramparts that you will find our cellar, whose walls still show three loopholes, and it is there that our different types of vines and vintages are developed with great care and the respect of the traditions of Alsace.
