Alsace

"Tucked into France's northeastern corner, Alsace follows the Rhine River through its long, thin strip. The Vosges Mountains protect and provide Alsace with a backdrop for some of France’s most stunning scenery. 

Central to this landscape of rolling hills and charming timber villages is the renowned Alsace Wine Route (Route des Vins d’Alsace), a 106 mile journey winding through more than 100 wine villages, 19 of which host 26 Michelin-starred restaurants...

Alsace’s claim to pure expression is undisputed—by the people who make the wines and those who drink them. Intimately connected with their parcels of land, winemakers here like to say you can taste the essence of Alsace in each wine … and it’s true. Every swirl in the glass releases layers of pure fruit, flower or spice, every sip reveals fresh minerality. With a diverse range of styles, there’s an Alsace wine for every taste and occasion.

Over 90% of Alsace wines are made from white grape varieties. Aromatic and balanced with impressive acidity and structure, these wines are remarkably food friendly...

Unlike most regions, all Alsace wines are appellation wines—defined and protected by French wine laws to ensure consistent and the highest-quality winemaking. They belong to one of 53 Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées (AOC)--51 of which are Grands Crus--depending on their viticulture and vinification." - Wines of Alsace
