With the Vosges Mountains to the west, and the Rhine River and German border to the east, Alsace is in a uniquely protected spot. Though it’s one of the world’s northernmost winemaking regions, it’s also one of the driest, as the mountains protect Alsace vineyards from rain. The long, dry growing seasons allow grapes to ripen fully. These grapes are filled with sugar and aromatics; when they are made into dry Riesling or Gewürztraminer wines, the wines retain lovely fragrance, delicious spice and moderate alcohol levels.
