Schlumberger is one of the best producers in Alsace. The vineyard, in the village of Guebwiller, has light sandy soil - the result of the erosion of the pink sandstone in the region. The climate is so good that it is known as the "valley of flowers".

Schlumberger focuses on white grape varieties, mainly riesling, pinot gris and gewurtztraminer. The family has the largest area of grand cru vineyards in the region.
