The best French wines from Alsace

Alsace is a beautiful region located in the north-east of France, with abundant vineyards, valleys and mountains. Its neighboring countries are Germany and Switzerland. The vineyards of Alsace are renowned for many grape varieties such as Riesling, Pinot blanc, Gewürztraminer, Pinot gris, Pinot noir, Sylvaner or Muscat. If you visit this charming region, you will be able to find many of the prestigious Alsace Grand Cru wines, which are limited vineyard wines. Grand Cru sites must be made from one of the four ‘noble grape varieties’: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Muscat.

Two other rare wine designations can be found in Alsace:  « Vendanges Tardives » (« Late Harvest ») and « Sélection de Grains Nobles » (« Selection of Noble Berries »).

We also heartily recommend you taste the Crémant d’Alsace, a delicious sparkling wine mostly made from Pinot Blanc.

Discover the famous Alsace Wine Route

Alsace is best known for its Route des Vins (Wine Route), a route that stretches 170km into the most typical villages of the region, with verdurous vineyards, medieval ramparts, castles and beautiful half-timbered houses. On this route, wine cellars welcome you on wine-tasting tours to introduce you to the Alsatian culture and traditions.

Many towns and villages located on the Wine Route are worth visiting. Among them are:

  • Eguisheim
  • Colmar
  • Ribeauvillé
  • Kaysersberg
  • Riquewihr
  • Obernai
