A trip to Alsace

As part of our summer holiday this year we spent 3 lovely days  exploring Alsace, basing ourselves in Colmar. We didn’t hear many English voices so I guess it’s off the radar for most which is a real shame. Hopefully I can tempt you with a few photos. The food and wine are superb. I think we made it through most of the grape varieties and Pinot Blanc turned out to be our favourite.

A great name for  wine tasting

About Man et Vin

I am a 47 year old living in Nottingham. Maybe, like me, you have become disillusioned by the quality and variety of most wine that is sold in the UK. I am not anti supermarket or wine store but there must be more out there. Please join me on my journey to find decent good value wine. At the same time I want to find out more about storage, availablity and discover some of the lesser known wine growing areas. I have nothing to do with the wine industry, as it happens I am a middle manager in a financial services company.
