The Alsace Wine Route needs no introduction! The Domaine Pierre Adam is well worth a detour on this 170 km itinerary that winds its way through outstanding landscapes and famous wine-growing villages.
This family property, which has been established for two generations, elected to take root in Ammerschwihr, the cradle of the Kaefferkopf grand cru. In this exceptional region, the estate endeavours to preserve the uniqueness of the terroirs and the unique character of the grape varieties with the sole desire of producing quality cuvées.
To achieve this goal, the wine-growers have opted for an integrated and sustainable form of farming across their 6 hectares divided between young and old vines. This philosophy, which blends authentic know-how with a nature-friendly approach, gives birth to a range of top-flight wines, with two major categories standing out: Vins de Tradition grown on the terroirs on the plains and Vins de Prestige from the hillside terroirs.
The vineyard opens its doors to the general public with assorted experiences, motivated by the desire to spread the word about the wines and charms of Alsace to as many people as possible. Visitors are welcome throughout the year, when they can enjoy being guided through the wine cellars or learn all about oenology. Lovers of the great outdoors will choose to dive into the vineyard aboard an electric car on a guided tour. The more adventurous will be charmed by the customised treasure hunt, when they can set off along the vineyard paths to explore the history of Ammerschwihr by themselves. Enjoy the experience to the full by rounding off your visit with a tasting in the cellar based on several wines and Grands Crus. Are you part of a group? Then savour this moment of shared enjoyment with a small bight to eat.
Would you like to extend the experience and stay on the estate? The property also has guest rooms. All in all, there’s more than enough to soak up the authentic pleasures surrounded by the very best that Alsace has to offer.
