Discover Alsatian wines, the incredible diversity of the soil as well as medieval villages amongst the most beautiful in France. The Vosges create a shelter from the wind and rain thus producing a rather dry microclimate, perfect conditions for growing white grapes. This climate coupled with the diversity of  soil and grape variety produce some of the most generous and fruity white wines in France. You can also come to Alsace to discover splendid villages with cobbled streets and half-timbered houses nestled between vineyards and montains : Riquewihr, Kaysersberg, Eguisheim, Gueberschwihr ... not a movie set, or amusement park but very authentic small towns rising through the ages.
