A wine brand owned by DFV
Alsace, on the eastern border of France, produces predominantly varietal white wine. Some 2,000 mostly family-owned growers bottle and sell their own wines, although over 80 per cent of them are produced by just 175 companies. The smallest producer can still make a range of varietal wines including Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Muscat, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Auxxerois. All of whcih are the main grape varieties in Alsace and most growers plant all of them.
These wines are more distinctive in style than the mainstream grape varieties and usually provoke a love/hate response! Worth testing out on your tastebuds is a Gewurztraminer for a luscious & fragrant wine with lychee, lime and apricot aromas. This wine is wonderful with Chinese or Thai food. Discover the full on fruitiness of the fabulous Riesling grape which develops petrol aromas as it ages.
