While many wine merchants will say their very favourite wines are from Alsace, they are wines still unknown to most drinkers. That is, unless you are lucky enough to have visited this exceptionally beautiful corner of France, in the unspoilt Vosges mountains with its many picturesque villages and superlative food. I've known Alsace, its cuisine, and its wines well since I was a teenager there in my gap year, and I always want to go back.
The Dopff & Irion families began their partnership following World War II and now, with 60 hectares, have some of the finest vineyards in the region (with the average Alsatian vineyard being a mere hectare). These four wines are all superb and worth exploring - you can buy them individually or together in our mixed case.
