About the winery
The Beyer family have been wine-growers in Eguisheim, the cradle of the Alsace wine-producing region, since 1580. In 1867, Emile BEYER founded the "Maison de Vin d'Alsace" (the Alsace wine house, currently run by Léon BEYER, who took over the reins from his father Léon BEYER senior in 1959, and his son Marc.
Léon BEYER offers its clientele a complete selection of Alsace wines, from Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc to the prestigious Riesling, Tokay, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. These wines are presented under a world-renowned label and include special selections, such as the Riesling "Les Ecaillers", the Rieslings, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer "Comtes d'Eguisheim" and even the rare "Vendanges Tardives" and exceptional "Selections de Grains Nobles".
Grapes cultivated on the best slopes of Eguisheim and the surrounding area are the raw material from which are made the prestigious Alsace wines which have forged the worldwide reputation and brand image of Léon BEYER wines, present on the wine menus of the finest restaurant in France, Europe and even the world.
