Wines in Alsace: White in the spotlight


The majority of Alsatian wines are dry whites with fruity aromas and floral notes. It is also the region that produces the most crémants, hence the famous “crémant d'Alsace”. There are 51 grands crus, such as Kaefferkopf or Altenberg.

Today, more than 15,000 hectares are cultivated for the production of wine.

Pinot blanc is a balanced and delicate wine, while Muscat d'Alsace is a dry, fruity white. Gewurtztraminer is the star of sweet wines. It goes well with full-bodied cheeses. As for Riesling, it is the king of dry white wines, ideal with seafood and white meats. The less famous Pinot Gris is a wine with floral aromas, while the Sylvaner is light and very refreshing.
