Domaine Fernand Engel

Rorschwihr, France

Within the vibrant and picturesque region of Alsace lies a hidden gem that exudes history, culture, and exquisite wines. While Alsace is celebrated for its colorful half-timbered houses and lively towns, there are enchanting treasures concealed within its lesser-known corners. At the heart of Alsace, situated at the base of the majestic Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, Rorschwihr stands as a village that emanates an air of understated elegance, wisdom, and distinction. Its past is a tapestry woven with captivating encounters, and its wines, renowned since 742, have graced the palates of luminaries such as Pépin le Bref and Clément III.
