  • Dégustation de Grands Crus du vignoble alsacien
  • Francis Klee, l'œnologue de la maison Kuehn d'Ammerschwihr, nous fait visiter les caves de l'Enfer
  • Dégustation de Grands Crus d'Alsace

See the vineyards of Alsace in a whole different light; take this tour and discover the close links between the history of our villages and our wines, and of course, the jewel in our crown: the Grands Crus. Start out from the Kaysersberg Valley, where the Grands Crus wines of Alsace first saw the light of day in 1975, and most recently, in 2007. It is undoubtedly the ideal spot to learn more about these exceptional wines, created from our soils by winegrowers with drive and vision. Start by enjoying a delicious meal of seasonal, local produce, lovingly prepared in one of our selected gourmet restaurants, and carefully matched with our Grands Crus wines.

New in 2021: we now offer 3 meal formulas. In addition to the traditional formula, you will be able to try the "flavours" formula of the restaurants distinguished by the famous Michelin Guide® (holders of a Bib Gourmand or a plate) or let yourself be seduced by a "Parenthèse étoilée" in one of our 3 restaurants in the valley distinguished by the famous Michelin stars ® !

Then, when your taste buds have been satiated, unwind in a comfortable room in one of our boutique hotels. Next day, hire an electric bike (for an extra charge) and take a spin around the vineyards and pretty villages as far as Ammerschwihr.
 
History fans will be thrilled to meet Francis KLEE, domaine KUEHN's enologist and a highly knowledgeable historian. Alsace is a region steeped in history, marked by the Second World War; Ammerschwihr was the scene of some very testing times and was 85% destroyed during World War II. Back at the domaine, seven metres below ground, visitors will marvel at les Caves de l'Enfer (the Cellars of Hell); here, as part of a candle-lit tasting, M. Klee will explain the specifics of the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru and its very particular character which makes it the pride of the village.
