Overlooking the town of Ingersheim , between 250 and 280 m high, "the Hill of Flowers" is east exposed.  It is a calcareous substratum from the Bathonien and Bajocien periods which covers at its base some conglomerates and marl from the Oligocene.

Florimont wines were appreciated and praised by famous notables of the period, such as the Earls of Lupfen and Baron Schwendi, great benefactor of winegrowing in Alsace.
