This wine schools the world in how to make a great wine. Maybe it’s the grape? Region? Or a combination of both – a wine in perfect harmony with everything we want to drink and eat right now. Smells like honeysuckle straight off the vine. Orange blossom in the cool air as the winter citrus season is just a few months away. Tastes like apricot jam, orange marmalade, with a bit of spiced fruit cake. It’s begging for a big, ripe, soft French cheese, so foodies – get your cheese boards out!
A dry Alsatian Riesling is the perfect white to have in your dinner party arsenal. This goes well with simple entertaining dishes such as charcuterie, fresh goat cheeses, caramelized onions, smoked fish and poultry.
Though the domaine is generations old, Vincent Gross represents its latest generation and has brought the winery to the cutting edge of modern winemaking. He is a young, enthusiastic winemaker practicing biodynamic viticulture and producing truly exciting wines. Located in the heart of Alsace, only a few kilometers from Colmar, Domaine Gross is a family-owned estate dedicated to the biodynamic philosophy and traditions. They cultivate 10 hectares of vines, and have become more devoted to minimal intervention techniques, including no added sulfur at bottling.
