Crémant d’Alsace

Alsace Riesling

Alsace Gewurztraminer

…including wines from the region’s top producers

 “Riesling and Gewurztraminer are the two signature grapes of Alsace,” says Alsace Wines’ Foulques Aulagnon.  “Grapes that can so perfectly reflect the characters, personalities and terroirs throughout the region.”

And did you know… that Crémant d’Alsace is the most popular sparkling wine in France after Champagne?

Alsace Wines: Catholic and Protestant?  Can you taste the difference?

Masterclass Tasting

hosted by

Sarah Abbott MW & Simon Woods

3pm to 4.30pm

 Limited places available - please let me know if you would like to book a seat


It was Pierre Gassman who first talked to us about Catholic and Protestant wines in Alsace back in 2011 and we have been wanting to hold this tasting ever since.  It’s something that is openly acknowledged by winemakers throughout the region.  But does it really exist?  And if so, how marked is this difference and can it be defined?

Sarah Abbot MW and Simon Woods will take you through a tasting of the following 8 wines, so you can judge for yourself if there really are Catholic and Protestant styles of winemaking.
