University House Members and Guests are invited to a Alsace Masterclass presented by Thomas Schlumberger from Domaines Schlumberger.

Alsace wine or Alsatian wine (in French: Vin d’Alsace) (German: Weinbau in Elsass) is produced in the Alsace region in France and is primarily white wine. Because of its Germanic influence, it is the only Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée region in France to produce mostly varietal wines, typically from similar grape varieties to those used in German wine. Along with Austria and Germany, it produces some of the most noted dry Rieslings in the world as well as highly aromatic Gewürztraminer wines. Wines are produced under three different AOCs: Alsace AOC for white, rosé and red wines, Alsace Grand Cru AOC for white wines from certain classified vineyards and Crémant d’Alsace AOC for sparkling wines. Both dry and sweet white wines are produced.

Registration essential.

Members $10.00 | Guests $20.00
