Alsace, France

  • Monday, Day 28/09/2020
  • In spite of being in the north of France, the predominantly white wines from the region of Alsace are rich, sometimes powerful, and always highly perfumed. The region enjoys its own micro-climate, protected down the west side by the Vosges mountain range, and is actually the driest wine region in France. Principal grapes grown are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat, and wine styles can range from bone dry (Riesling is usually vinified in this way) to remarkably sweet and spicy but still balanced Gewurztraminers.
