At a crossroads, outside the village of Eguisheim, the Léon Beyer winery is quietly perpetuating the time-honored tradition of producing great, classic Alsace wines. The Beyer family have been wine-growers since 1580. Emile Beyer founded the firm in 1867, and it was initially based in the center of the village, before relocating to a former post-house outside the village walls, at the end of the First World War.
The business was then managed by Léon Beyer, who was succeeded by his son of the same name in 1959, who was also Mayor of Eguisheim, as was his father. As a gourmet, the elegant and affable Léon Beyer II – assisted by his son Marc -focused on creating the gastronomic aura that distinguishes their wines.
