Présentation et Dégustation de Grands Crus, Château de Kientzheim, Alsace

Every year in early November, CIVA (Alsace’s professional wine association) invites the region’s winegrowers to present their Grand Cru wines at the Château de Kientzheim near Colmar. If you’re anywhere in the neighbourhood today, don’t miss this great opportunity to taste Grand Cru wines from the length and breadth of the Route des Vins and to meet the makers.

Today is for the general public, tomorrow for professionals and press. Not sure that I’ll make it this year – and if you’re going to miss it too, there’s an account here of last year’s presentation, with a bit of background on the vexed question of the Grand Cru designation in Alsace.
