For Serious Wine Geeks
Taste with Friends

Alsace is a traditional region with strict regulations. In spite of that, some winemakers are pushing the boundaries of the accepted norms in the region by championing less popular "minor" grape varieties, experimenting with Pinot Noir, making orange wine, and using complantation, a controversial technique where different grape varieties are grown on the same plot and harvested together.
