Alsace, France - Alsatian Vineyards and WInes

Alsace is an important wine growing region in France.  Vins d'Alsace (Alsatian wines) are mostly white.  The region produces some of the world's most noted dry rieslings and is the only region in France to produce mostly varietal wines identified by the name of the grape used.  The most notable is Gewürztraminer.  (wikipedia)

We walked from the bus to a small vineyard that hosted the tasting.  Vineyards were on either side of the cobblestoned street.
