If there was an entire region whose wine would make a perfect fit for late Summer & Autumn, it could very well be Alsace. This northern French region, nestled up against Germany, (and a sliver of border with Switzerland) is one of the most under-appreciated wine regions out there. Alsace Pinot Noirs (the sole red grape allowed there) are among the finest in the world. Whites wines, made from a variety of grapes, showcase a range of styles and are generally complex and nuanced. It’s a region that has strongly held on to its traditions while simultaneously becoming somewhat of a hotbed for natural winemaking.
