Alsace is an appellation created in 1962,although there has been viticulture here since at least the medieval period. producing mainly white wines [though there are a few reds] in the east of France by the German border.Indeed at some periods of history it was part of Germany and therefore the wines are not dissimilar to those on the other side of the Rhine. Appellation rules dictate a tall thin bottle called a 'flute d'Alsace. This is the only French appellation where the grape type has to appear on the label. The cremants and the Grand Cru wines have their own sub-appellations
