Grand Cru : [ Mandelberg ]

The Historian

" Mitenwilre " or " Middle Farm " is quoted under this name as of 974.
The vine growing since was always the principal activity of the village.
Murbach and other abbeys possessed vineyards there.
The counts of " Wurtemberg - Montbeliard " were the owners from the 14th century till the
Revolution.
However the village depended on the seigniory of Riquewihr.
It knew dark moments during the severe fightings of the " Poche de Colmar " and was almost entirely destroyed in 1945. It has been rebuilt since.
