Alsace

This region is very unique. French and German influences play an equal role in sculpting Alsace’s language, traditions, and even its wines. It is also the only region in France that sells its wine according to the name of the grape variety, and it has done so for quite some time. Another paradoxical fact is that Alsace is not only an important economic region with a highly dense population, but also an important agricultural and wine producing region. Although Alsace is one of France’s northernmost areas, its summers are hot and sunny and it is the driest region in the country. Winegrowing is a top priority here, and the region produces fine aromatic and heady white wines, two excellent examples of which are Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling.
