Panoramic View of Riquewihr and Surrounding Vineyards, Alsace, France
Riquewihr lies on a valey that is open to the east at the outlet of the Sembach River; towards the west, a vast state forest at an altitude of more than 900m forms the background to this site. Riquewihr is flanked to the north and to the south by the Vosges foothills planted with the vines which produce the Major Vintages of Schoenenbourf and Sporen, which were already being mentioned in the Middle Ages.
