Due to soil and climate, the Alsace region has been suitable for growing grapes since ancient times. It is called the wine road. In the afternoon, the Viking Concierge took us to visit a family-owned winery, which has been inherited from generation to generation many years ago. Down
The houses here are all single-family European-style cottages. I really want to have one, the whole family lives together, live in such a rich land, carefree and enviable
we visit the Krasl wine Zhuang has 30 hectares of its own vineyard, of which 50% can be used to make top wines. After entering the winery, there are hostesses who take us to the underground wine cellar. It is very old. It used to be the first to build oak barrels. The roof was built and each barrel was marked with a number and volume.
After the owner of the winery took us to the exhibition hall, many original wine making tools, wine making equipment and farming tools, wines from our mouth and these complicated processes are inseparable
after tasting Of course, you can take a few bottles and go back and taste it as a gift, and the price is much more cost-effective here. You must bring two bottles to the mother-in-law who loves to drink wine.
To give us a deeper insight into the charm of Alsace white wines, Viking Cruises arranged us to visit the most popular premium vineyards here, the Kyle Vineyards of Klipfel Edelzwicker ( Clos Zisser).
There are many houses surrounded by flowers along the way, like a postcard in the clear sky. The Alsace region is really sunny, and it is no wonder that the wines produced here are so famous. In addition to Riesling, Alsace also produces white wines such as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Gewrztramin, as well as the more popular Alsace sparkling wine (Crmant d). 'Als ace).
The wine is stored in harsh conditions, so when you enter the wine cellar, you feel cool. In the heat, it is definitely a summer resort. In the deep wine cellar, the traces of the years are everywhere. Especially in these age-old collections, although it seems to have a thick layer of white crystals and dust, each bottle is worth a lot.
The owner of the winery told us that this is actually a myth of many people about wine. Not all wines are more delicious in the ages. Every year, the wines are affected by the rain, the sun and other factors. Even if the same variety is brewed, the taste will be subtle or even different.
Leaving the wine cellar, we came to a pocket wine museum. The museum is privately owned and the owner is keen to collect a variety of wine-related artifacts until one day his wife is unbearable. They donated all the collections and set up such a small, well-organized museum.
From the cultivation and harvesting of grapes to the brewing of wine, you can see the changes of all the tools here. The leader of the Viking cruise ship carefully translated the interpretation of the owner of the winery. Here, it seems to travel through time and space and meet the manor workers of that year to carry out a magical journey. Even if there are the best varieties, the best workers, the most suitable soil, the purest water, but the ability to make delicious wines, it still depends on the sky. This unpredictability is actually the charm of wine. local.
