Sommeliers and savvy foodies have long extolled the virtues of Alsace wine. These wines are food-friendly, versatile and, most importantly, delicious. Indeed some would argue that because they are not the most fashionable their prices haven’t been driven up in a way that, say, those of Burgundy have.
Throughout September, five D&D restaurants — Aster, Avenue, Bluebird, Plateau and Skylon — have partnered up with Alsace Wines to showcase a hand-picked range of wines from a variety of producers (Cave de Turckheim, Hugel and Jean Biecher). Each restaurant will be offering a complimentary glass of Alsace wine with their Back to Work September Set Menu.
Know anything about Alsace wine? Well, white wine makes up 90% of production in the Alsace region, which itself is split into two main areas, the Vosges mountains in the west and the Rhine river in the east. These regions produce mainly white grapes, the main ones being Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Gewurztraminer, followed by Pinot Gris — Pinot Noir (made famous by Burgundy) is the main red grape. Along with Austria and Germany, Alsace produces some of the most noticeably dry Rieslings in the world, as well as highly aromatic Gewürztraminer wines.
The partnership is running throughout September at Avenue, Bluebird Chelsea, Skylon, Plateau, Aster. Book a table and enjoy a glass of Alsace wine as part of your menu.
