Ammerschwihr is a picturesque commune located in the Haut-Rhin part of Alsace. It contains the Grand Cru Kaefferkopf as well as part of Wineck-Schlossberg. Kaefferkopf has the distinction of being the very first named vineyard site in Alsace to have its borders defined, but it was not classified as a Grand Cru until 2006. This was because there was a traditon of belnding at this site. Generally, Alsace Grands Crus are restricted to varietal wines from “noble” varieties. In addition, the soil here is geologically diverse rather than uniform. Finally, a decision to recognize Kaefferkopf’s historic importance was made. Today, the wines can be made from a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.
