About Alsace

The Alsace wine region is virtually unique in France in that producers are allowed to put the grape variety on the label of their appellation contrĂŽlĂ©e wines. It is also unique in that the grapes are both German and French: Riesling and GewĂŒrztraminer, Muscat and Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner. These are not light wines, but they have a combination of fruitiness and richness quite different from the German models just across the Rhine. Although primarily dry, some are sweet, so consult individual Alsace wine reviews to see in which style each wine is made. Our Alsace wine guide contains hundreds of Alsace wine ratings.
