The vineyard's climate is a key factor, as it favours the growth of the vines and thus determines the quality of the wine.

Alsace enjoys a semi-continental climate with cold winters and hot, dry and sunny summers, as well as a microclimate specific to this region. The vineyard is sheltered by the Vosges mountains, which act as a natural barrier for the vineyard and give the region the lowest rainfall in France. This factor reduces the risk of rot and limits the treatments of the vines.

The alternation in autumn of warm days on a well-exposed vineyard and cool nights is favourable to a slow and prolonged maturation of the grapes. The proximity of a river, the Rhine, also offers a microclimate unique to Alsace.
