The small geographic region of Alsace is hidden in the north-eastern corner of France on the border of Germany and Switzerland. The picturesque towns look as if they come from a children’s book: ancient wooden houses, narrow roads and mist that covers the area from time to time, give the feeling as if in a movie.
The wines of Alsace are different from the rest of the French wines: this area specializes in white wines whose names appear on wine labels as distinguished from what is accepted in France. Riesling, Gewürztraminer and even Pinot Noir are tasty and have the special character of the area.
There are many restaurants that are happily recommended by the Michelin guide, cheese manufacturers, sausages, pastries, jams and more, reminding the travelers in the area of the importance of living life itself and enjoying it along the way.
