Terroir Trail: Alsace Grand Cru Walkaround Tasting

Terroir Trail: Alsace Grand Cru Walkaround Tasting

This evening is going to be an absolute wonderful event. We have teamed up with Vins d'Alsace to create a truly memorable walkaround tasting focussing on the influence of terroir on the Grand Crus of Alsace. There are over 25 Grand Crus on offer to taste spanning three grape varieties; Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. The terroir can shape the style dramatically. From limestone, marl-limestones, clay, sandstone, volcanic and schistous soils they all have differing properties which can coax a plethora of aromas, flavours and characteristics creating ample diversity.  

The tasting will begin at 6:30pm until 9.30pm. You may wish to turn-up-and-taste for an hour or the full three hours. You will be given a TERROIR TRAIL booklet where you can follow and taste by soil type or grape variety. This is an excellent opportunity to taste the greatest examples of Alsace, the Grand Crus, amidst their differing locations and mosiacs of terroir. Wine School founder Jimmy Smith will of course be on hand to help you... he's not going to miss this one!

Jimmy Smith was awarded the much coveted Consoeur Oenophile from the Confrérie Saint-Etienne a'Alsace, a brotherhood that can be traced to the 14th century, making it one of the oldest wine brotherhoods in France. The guild’s rules and regulations, created in 1561, are still honored.
