Alsace, in the east of France, boasts a 170 km vineyard. The region has a rich history when it comes to wine, starting during the Roman conquests. In the early 19th century, the Alsatian vineyard represented 30 000 of land, which is to say twice its current size. Today, 1.2 million hectoliters of wine are made each year in Alsace. A fourth of which is destined to be sold in other countries.
The vineyard mostly produces white wines, from single variety grapes like Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, or Riesling. The weather and the rich soil (limestone, clay, marl...) help white grapes to mature and remain very fruity, which explains why they're so predominant in the region.
