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

Join Geraldine for a fun and educational evening exploring Alsace wines accompanied by choucroute, a traditional dish from this region
