Top 10 wine regions worth a second look


This story by travel writer Ted Loos was just sent to us. It appreared on Smart Luxury Travel Magazine  A must read !

"Some of the most soulful places in the world of wine are often passed over or pigeonholed based on factors like geography and reputation. Some of these regions are just taking root while others are long-established, but a visit to any one of them could forever change your idea of what to drink with dinner - not to mention what it's like to visit a winery.

The stellar whites from this lovely area bordering Germany - mainly gewürztraminers, rieslings, and pinot gris - are among the most sophisticated and food-friendly on the planet. They're second to none with spicy Asian dishes because of the natural aromatics in the grapes as well as the high acid levels that develop in a chilly climate."

Anybody listening ? See the full article which recommends our wines and a visit to the Hugel cellars.

Alsace is on top of this top 10 list, just as it was a few months ago on Lonely Planet's top 10 list. Something must be true ;-)
