Tucked into France's northeastern corner beside the German border, the vineyards of Alsace follow the Rhine River through a concentrated long, thin strip. The Vosges Mountains protect and provide Alsace with one of the sunniest and driest French climates.
A top white wine region most famous for it’s dry Riesling, Alsace also produces Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and the sparkling Crémant d’Alsace. Wines from this region are typically very aromatic with unctuous floral notes. Wine makers here tend towards varietally pure wines with a gentle balance of ripeness and alcohol which sets them apart from most European regions.
