Wines of Alsace area
Alsace is in between two major influences : German and Roman. Thus, the Alsacian vineyard tells the story of a culture brought by the Romans in the beginning of our era, then brought back to life by the Merovingiens and Carolingiens. In the Middle-Age, the wines of Alsace are already some of the most prestigeous of Europe. The alsacian viticulture shines during the 16th century. This period of prosperity is brutally stopped by the 30-years war, leaving the region subject to robbery, flail, demographic and commercial decline. 

The vineyard of Alsace was reborn after World War 1, when the winemakers decide and commit to a quality policy, by only producing wines made from local grapes. From 1945, this policy is continued by the limitation of the vine growing areas and creation of stricter laws of production and vinification. Then, it receives the AOC Alsace in 1962, Alsace Grand Cru in 1975 and Crémant d'Alsace in 1976. 

The vineyard of Alsace spreads on about 15,000 hectares from North to South, between Strasbourg and Mulhouse. The climate is continental, with warm Springs, dry and sunny Summers and cold Winters. Located in the Rhein valley, the vineyard is protected from the wind and the rain by the Vosges mountain (on the West). The main varieties for white wines frm Alsace are Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Blanc (or Kelvner). Pinot Noir is used for the production of red wines.
