Alsace Grand Cru is the appellation for the finest wines from the Alsace region of NE France. Created in 1983, the appellation was based on a classification of the region's vineyards carried out in 1975 and has been the subject of multiple revisions since.

There are about 51 Grand Cru vineyards in Alsace, dotted along the lower slopes of the Vosges Mountains.
The varieties permitted for use under the appellation laws are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat. A small number of exceptions to this rule have emerged in the past few years as a result of lobbying by local producers.
Not all wines from Grand Cru sites are labeled with the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. Such is the prestige of certain long-established wine brands in Alsace that their makers choose to retain that name in preference to the Grand Cru title.
