In the north-eastern corner of France sits Alsace, right on the border of Germany.

The territory changed rule between France and Germany four times in the 20th Century alone, and is greatly influenced by both cultures. Unlike other French regions, wines from Alsace are mostly single varietals and are labelled with the variety name. Winemakers also are required to use the tall, slim bottles that are commonly seen with German wines.

Domaine Josmeyer has been making wine for five generations(under five different rulers). Today, sisters Céline and Isabelle run the Domaine. Both initially studied fine arts and history of art, which is reflected in the fascinating labels, and Céline's poetry can be found on the back.

Since 2004, the entire vineyard has been cultivated organically and biodynamically. The 25-hectare estate is spread across 90 plots, with parcels in the famous Grand Cru sites of Hengst and Brand, recognised for their exceptional wine production. The hand-picked grapes are crushed and left to rest in century-old casks where the wines ferment naturally.

Although Alsace is most known for its Riesling, Pinot Gris is also prized in the region, with its crisp acidity and savoury spice and ripe stone fruit flavours. Salty and dry, Le Fromenteau works well with dishes rich in flavour, such as a mushroom risotto or a dish featuring pork, duck or rabbit.
