The Grand Cru Sommerberg ("summer hill") is located between the communes of Ammerschwihr and Türckheim, on a very steep hillside (up to 45°), with granitic arena. It is cultivated in terraces and faces south. The vines are 60 years old, with a yield of 30 hl/ha. The letter "D" (cuvée formerly named "L31DII") refers to the Düdenstein, included in the Sommerberg. It is a plot selection of vines planted between 1946 and 1953 and located at the bottom of the hillside, where sandstone mixes with granite. Sometimes the cuvée is declared Vendange Tardive (VT).
Alcoholic fermentation is generally carried out with indigenous yeasts and malolactic fermentation is not sought. The pressings on whole grapes are slow and the settling that follows is not very thorough. The wine is fermented in large tuns. Total sulphur levels are low for the region (80 mg/l) and only 20 mg of free sulphur at bottling.
