Sheltered by the Vosges Mountains to the west and hard against the German border to the east, lie some of France’s best vineyards and best wine-makers. The wines of Alsace are relatively unknown and misunderstood by many people. On most supermarket shelves you will be lucky to find one or two examples of those tall, Germanic, “flute” bottles with unfamiliar names: Tokay-Pinot Gris, Sylvaner and Gewürztraminer. Alsace wines are made in a French style however, and tend to be drier, more full-bodied and higher in alcohol than their German counterparts . The whole of the Alsace region is covered by only two ACs: Alsace and Alsace Grand Cru. This designation will appear on the label, along with the grape variety. The finest wines are made from the Riesling grape.
