Wine of AlsaceView all products in Wine of Alsace »
The wines from the vineyards of Alsace span about a hundred kilometers along the foothills of the Vosges. This French territory has a sub-continental climate, not too mild, with harsh winters and hot summers. Thus, the vineyard takes advantage of the low rainfall and dry weather for the slow ripening of the grapes and the appearance of intense aromas.
The Alsace region has a variety of land types, so we can find clay and calcareous areas, siliceous and clay loam soils or even areas with granite or rocky soils. In many municipalities in this region there are several of these different kinds of soils.
In Alsace, different types of strains are used. Among the white wine, we find Gewurtztraminer, Riesling, Tokay-Pinot Gray, Muscatell, Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc or Chasselas. For red and rosé wines, the most common is the Pinot Noir. It is easy to identify strains, since wines in Alsace are named after the strain they come from.
