Some of them have been famous for more than a thousand years, others for several decades, but all come from privileged terroirs where geology, climate and exposure form an exceptional harmony. All of them are born from this special alchemy that unites air, earth, vines and the art of men.
Very early on, the Alsatian winegrowers noticed the specificities that certain places called conferred on the cultivation of their vines and their wines.
Since the 9th century, Alsatian winegrowers have referred to the notion of Grands Crus.They noticed the specificities of certain places influencing the cultivation of their vines and their wines.
Thus, the best terroirs are born from the observation and know-how of generations of winegrowers. Over time, they have revealed the most remarkable soils, often steep and ideally exposed.
Today, the mosaic of Alsace Grands Crus is made up of 51 terroirs delimited by strict geological and climatic criteria. The resulting wines account for about 5% of production.
