If you're very familiar with Alsace wine, you probably have a short list of favorite producers to visit already...
But there are many small producers in Alsace whose wines don't make it very far outside of Alsace...
Mainly because they produce very small quantities and they sell out fast!
There are two different styles of wineries in Alsace...
Drinking and Driving in Alsace
But be careful...you can find yourself quite tipsy or more quite easily at just one wine tasting. All the better to hire someone to take you on an Alsace Wine tour (ahem, ahem points at self and smiles) so you can enjoy yourself fully! : D
is the traditional tasting house where the owner or a member of the
owner's family is usually there...you look at the wine list...you choose
which wines you want to taste...you taste some wine...you ask some
questions...you buy some wine.
They're usually small producers with really great wine! They are less likely to speak English, but it depends...
other style is more organized...you pay a tasting fee...you taste a set
series of wines or choose from a variety of set tasting menus...you can
buy some wine if you want...the tasting room is usually conveniently
located on a main road with a parking area and it's usually large enough
for a big group of people...like a tour bus...
Personally I prefer the smaller more traditional wineries. Maybe I'm biased, the their wine is soo much better...
Here are just a few of my personal wine tasting experiences in Alsace...enjoy!
