This was the first place we visited on our trip and I was so pleased. We had a chance to taste a few wines. I've always enjoyed Gewurztraminer wines and it was specific to this region. I don't know a lot about wine, and not really interested if I'm being honest, but I really enjoy drinking it. :) I like how the flavors change when paired with food. My only regret is that I didn't buy the bottles I had intended to. We were going to explore Colmar a bit, and didn't want to carry the bottles around. But we ended up not having enough time to go back :( I'm hoping it will give us a reason to go back!
I was able to taste several wines from this winery for free of charge Sunday morning. They closed at noon on that day. The owner told me that Riesling and Gewurztraminer are grapes specially grown in this Alsace region. The end taste of Riesling is more mineral and clean and that of Gewurztraminer is more rosy and aromatic. Gewurztraminer is sweeter so that it is good as a dessert wine. Their Gewurztraminer 2009 (Late Harvest) maintains 100% sweetness, which tasted rich and very aromatic but actually not too sweet, so it seems good for desserts. I liked it. Other two signature Gewurztraminer wines tasted similarly aromatic but less sweet. Actually, the differences in sweetness are subtle. Then, I tried their Riesling 2015. It was moderately dry and fruity and the end is mineral. It would go well with seafood and fish, etc. I ended up with buying Riesling 2015 (8,00 euros) and Gewurztraminer 2016 (9,40 euros). I believe it was a good deal. I recommend visiting this winery.
