Alsace wine was historically classed as 'Rhenish' or of the Rhine and sold with German labels.

      They played traditional French (accordion music) or traditional German (a Bierkeller brass band – oompah music) music at customers and watched the sales of wine from their experimental wine shelves, which contained French and German wine matched for price and flavour. On French music days 77% of the wine sold was French, on German music days. The winner for largest German wine region by area is Baden, which covers basically the entire southwestern corner of the country from Lake Constance, along the Swiss and French borders and including the towns of Saarbrucken, Heidelberg, Freiberg, Stuttgart, and Baden-Baden.

      Rieslings from Germany and Alsace, France - Rieslings are fantastic wines to pair with food, and are a hit with wine lovers who favor slightly sweeter wines. This tasting is an intro to the regions that make the world's best Rieslings - Germany and Alsace, France.. Exploring Wine Tastings (featuring $$50 wines). As cool-climate wines, French wines are lighter-bodied, lower in alcohol, and higher in acidity than warm-climate wines, such as many of California’s wines. These characteristics enable many French wines to accompany food more graciously than do the fuller-bodied, high-alcohol American wines. Emphasis of terroir vs. the grape variety.
