Did you know ? There is a Queen of Alsace Wines. A kind of "Miss Alsace", but for the wine. On the occasion of the 6th Colmar Wine Fair in 1954, this title saw the light of day for the first time. Several young women then made it their mission to be ambassadors for Alsace wines throughout France.
Alsace wines: white in the spotlight
The majority of Alsace wines are dry whites with fruity aromas and floral notes. It is also the region that produces the most crémants, hence the famous crémant d'Alsace. There are 51 grands crus, such as Kaefferkopf or Altenberg.
Today, more than 15,000 hectares are cultivated by many winegrowers in Alsace.
The 7 Alsatian grape varieties
Pinot blanc is a balanced and delicate wine, while Muscat d'Alsace is a fruity dry white. The Gewurztraminer is the star of sweet wines. It goes wonderfully with strong cheeses. As for Riesling, it is the king of dry white wines, ideal with seafood and white meats. The less famous Pinot Gris is a wine with floral aromas, while the Sylvaner is light and very thirst-quenching. Pinot Noir is the only grape variety producing red wine in Alsace. Its aromas are fruity. The wines of Alsace are very often acclaimed by many positive opinions.
During your stay in Alsace, you will often have the opportunity (and the desire) to visit the many castles of the wine route to discover the treasures of the greatest wine estates. The winegrowers present on Winalist offer you an alternative to simple tasting: it is a real introduction to oenology that gives you the keys to understanding and appreciating all the subtleties of the region's wines.
The experience often begins with a guided tour of the estate, after which you can taste the wines produced directly in the winegrower's cellar, or have a picnic in the middle of the rows of vines. In Alsace, the specialty of many estates is white wine (Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris for the best known). From cultivation to bottling, our partner growers reveal some well-kept secrets for generations.
