Pleasure Wine: Alsace Wines

 

Discover the Alsace appellations

 

Alsace, in the east of France, boasts a 170 km vineyard. The region has a rich history when it comes to winemaking, 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, made with single variety grapes like Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, or Riesling. The only red grape variety that's officially cultivated here is the Alsace Pinot Noir (not to be mistaken with the original Burgundy version). 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.
