Drinking and Pairing Alsace with Food

Alsace is a long but narrow wine-growing region in France's northeastern corner situated between the Vosges Mountains and the German border. Red and rosé wines are produced from the Pinot Noir grape, but Alsace is best known for its richly textured, aromatic white wines produced from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Pinot Blanc, and Sylvaner.

Alsatian wines are typically labeled by their grape variety and are traditionally dryer and fuller-bodied than their German counterparts, making them suitable for richer foods. Late harvest and dessert styles are also produced, labeled as Vendage Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles, respectively.
