The first one - territorial, forms the western Vosges and the other - political boundary is 25 km far from the river Rhine, which creates the history of the region from time immemorial (Alsace, however, belonged to Germany in the past only during the occupation). In fact, German wines are prepared in the French style.
Winemakers seek to dry solid and strong wine. The tone here indicate climate, soil and vine composition.
