ALSACE WINES and …. CHOUCROUTE
Alsace has a truly exceptional setting for growing grapes. This picturesque region, protected by the Vosges Mountains, is blessed with enviable conditions: ancient soils, noble grapes and an extraordinary climate – one of the driest in France. Thirteen distinct terroirs make Alsace a mosaic unlike anywhere else. Here, minerality and freshness aren’t just concepts, they are the story of the wines.
Because of its Germanic influence, it is the only region in France to produce mostly varietal white wines, typically from similar grape varieties to those used in German wines. Alsace produces the most celebrated dry Rieslings in the world as well as highly aromatic Gewurztraminer wines. With the global warming, Pinot Noir has also recently won a high recognition for its finesse and age worthy ability
