    The Alsace region in the north-eastern corner of France is well known for producing stellar white wines. Riesling and Gewurztraminer are the most popular, but Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio) is right behind them. The wines produced here are markedly different, in part due to the heavy German influence (the whole region has changed nationality several times throughout history, switching between Germany and France) and partially due to the mix of volcanic and limestone soils and the unique climate created by the Vosges Mountains. Like any good wine, you almost feel that you can taste these elements in the glass.
