Terroir/Region: Alsace, France is known for perfect growing conditions and long, warm autumns which allow grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. More famous is the use of wines from Alsace in food pairings. Versatile, expressive and balanced, the wines of Alsace are celebrated on wine lists the world over for elevating the dining experience and charming the palates of those who order them.

Producer: The Willm family began its wine business in 1896 in the small town of Barr in Alsace making wines from the now famous Clos Gaensbrœnnel, while still running the family restaurant. Its wines, paired with the family’s foods, gained a reputation that quickly spread throughout France and then the world. It is said that even Al Capone had a few bottles of Willm Clos Gaensbrœnnel in his wine cellar!
