Alsace, located in the northeastern part of France, has long been defined by its geographical proximity to Germany. Alsace is a relatively long, thin wine region that winds along the French-German border. As a result, some grape varietals that are grown here - including Riesling and Gewürztraminer - are not grown anywhere else in France.
