About Domaine Geschickt

This is in response to the realization that land and the vineyard’s longevity depends on their sustainability. Together, they have worked hard to become both Demeter and EcoCert certified and are committed to offering the best of Alsatian terroir, rich in both history and savoir-faire.

About Alsace

Alsace has always been in a bit of a pickle. Its perilous location on the border of Germany and France made the area a tug-of-war for centuries. Today if you visit Alsace, you can see how the interventions of two mega empires affected the area through its architecture and the presence of both French and German languages.

The food and the wine of Alsace are also a bit of a mish-mash. For instance, Germanic grape varieties like Gewurztraminer and Riesling dominate the French départment, but in Alsace, they are produced in a very different style.

Alsatian wine is all about aromas. Floral and peachy smells fly out of the glass and many of the wines are unctuous enough to pair nicely with savory fowl, like roast quail. Alsace wines give the tingle of brilliant acidity but also offer a rich texture from moderate alcohol (some wines are 14 – 15% ABV). The producers in Alsace do not use oak aging to add spice and richness, instead, they rely on a balance of ripeness and alcohol to fill out the flavor.
