The Maison Kuehn vineyard is located in Ammerschwihr, west of Colmar in Alsace. The Appellation Alsace Grand Cru Contrôlée crowns delimited terroirs with exceptional geological features and exposure.  These terroirs produce exceptional wines, gastronomic wines, fascinating and authentic wines.

Vinification of Riesling Grand Cru Kaefferkopf

Our oenologist, Francis Klee, keeps a particularly close eye on these plots and follows all the rules of conduct associated with the Alsace Grand Cru appellation with great rigour. The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand. The grapes are gently pressed and the juice is naturally clarified at low temperature. Fermentation is slow and ageing on fine lees for a minimum of 9 months gives the wine the richness and intense, complex expression of the world's greatest white wines.
