visiting the neighbours (in alsace…)

wolfberger

Saturday involved a short (1 hour) hop into the Alsace. We took a friend to visit the impossibly pretty village of Eguisheim for lunch, where the large co-operative called Wolfberger is sited. They’d had quite a make-over since last time I visited – très impressive! Just for the record, half a dozen Cremant Vieilles Vignes, a brace of Rieslings (2010 Eichberg and 2012 Muenchberg) and fine Pinot Gris (2008 Rangen) made it back chez moi.

My wife bought some dodgy 20% alcohol ginger concoction – for adding to beer – presumably to make ginger beer! She was also a little tempted by their Alsacienne single malt whisky, but in the end stayed firm…

Of-course there are other domaines to visit in Eguisheim too! 😉

    Hi Bill
    I’m in Völlan near Meran and drink some great Barbera Villa Terlina Gradale and Monsicure.
    In Eguisheim I always go to Gruss that’s a real insider info. Great Cremant and excellent wines.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
