Scherwiller is located 50 km south of Strasbourg, 20 km from the border with Germany, and 450 km east of Paris. The village nestles at the junction of the valleys of Sainte Marie aux Mines and Villé, on the site of a major battle fought during the Peasant War.
The Frey-Sohler estate has evolved through several generations, all intimately linked with the village and the wines of Alsace. Currently occupying 29 hectares, the estate is run by Damien and Nicolas SOHLER. It is included within the "Scherwiller" Appellation Communale, and runs across the rocky slopes of the Rittersberg, at the foot of the imposing Château de l'Ortenbourg, which looks down upon these magnificent vineyards.
he Frey-Sohler estate covers 29 hectares of vineyards, and grows all the Alsatian grape varieties, from Sylvaner to Gewurztraminer, including the "Scherwiller" Appellation Communale (Riesling), Crémant d'Alsace (sparkling wine), Vendanges Tardives (late harvest) and Selections de Grains Nobles (Noble rot selection) and Grand Cru Frankstein.
The Frey-Sohler estate is the sole distributor of wines from the vineyard belonging to the Sohler family.
