The Wine Selection (General Tasting - 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM)

Crémant Rosé Lucien Albrecht - Alsace, France
The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann.

Pinot blanc 2017 - Domaine Willm - Alsace, France
A pale yellow with a fresh and floral nose reminiscent of elderflower; notes of gooseberries. The attack is supple. Fresh, dry, and easy to drink.

Pinot Gris 2011 - Domaine L’Oriel - Alsace, France
This wine is hard to find. This producer makes many wines including Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Rare White Blend, Silvaner, Edelzwicker Blend, Pinot Noir, Muscat, and Riesling.

Gewurztraminer 2015 - Trimbach - Alsace, France
Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs, and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together.

Riesling 2015 - André Kientzler - Alsace, France
The Kientzler family has been growing vines for more than five generations in Ribeauvillé and the surrounding area. As early as 1866, Dominique Alphonse Kientzler inherited vines from his father and grandfather and, in 1895, was involved in the creation of France’s first winemaking cooperative in Ribeauvillé.

Muscat 2015 - Domaine Zind Humbrecht - Alsace, France
The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 by the merging of two families, that of Zenon Humbrecht, viticulteur in Gueberschwihr, and of Emile Zind, viticulteur in Wintzenheim, with the marriage of their children Leonard Humbrecht and Ginette Zind. Before this date, both families produced and sold their wines separately.

Pinot Noir - Domaine Marcel Deiss - Alsace, France
Domaine Marcel Deiss is located in Bergheim, a small village nestled in the heart of the wine region of Alsace, equidistant from the northern and southern boundaries of the region. Current winemaker Jean-Michel Deiss was born into a long-established family of wine growers, living at Bergheim since 1744.
