ALSACE
 
Alsace is definitely one of the best white wine regions in the world. Tucked into France's northeastern corner, Alsace follows the Rhine River through its long, thin strip. The Vosges Mountains protect and provide Alsace with a backdrop for some of France’s most stunning scenery.
 
Based on historical reason, everything in Alsace is full of German influence, no matter in the language Alsacian speak, architecture style or name of places, even in wine. Different from other French wine regions, Alsace uses tall flute shape bottles – the one German wines commonly use, but not Bordeaux or Burgundy.
 
Over 90% of Alsace wines are made from white grape varieties and most of them are made with single grape variety. Aromatic and balanced with impressive acidity and structure, these wines are remarkably food friendly. There are 7 major grape varieties in Alsace, and only four of them can be labelled as Alsace Grand Cru: Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Muscat. And due to the special climate, winemakers are able to produce late harvest wine in excellent quality – the Vendages Tardives(late harvest) and Sélection de Grains Nobles(noble rot).

About Valentin Zusslin

BIODYNAMIC WINE OF DELICACY



 
Biodynamic Viticulture & Vinification are what Domaine Valentin Zusslin differentiate themselves from other Alsacian producers. Zusslin is a member of "La Renaissance des Terroirs (Return to Terroirs)", which is a pro-biodynamic organization founded by Nicolas Joly - the pioneer in biodynamic wine movement. Zusslin also is one of the top 10 wineries in the world in the organic and biodynamic sector by wine critic Tom Stevenson.

Established in 1691, and the domaine is now managed by Jean-Paul and Marie Zusslin, the 13th Generation of brother and sister team. In 1997 the domaine converted to biodynamic viticulture. Much of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is done by hand, in order that the grapes can express the full potential of the unique terroirs of the Domaine. Until now, Zusslin had officially obtained these certification: ECOCERT SAS FRANCE, DEMETER, BIODYVIN, AGRICULTURE BIOLOGIQUE.

The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. Zusslin's wine is 100% biodynamic with a high aging potential up to 15 - 20 years, they also have a very limited production of 90,000 bottles per year and the annual prodcution of Grand Cru wines is 3,000 bottles only. With great care to the vineyard and its ecology, the small production Valentin Zusslin is definitely wine of delicacy in Alsace.
