-- MyWinePal will be visiting France in the month of September, visiting the regions of Champagne, Alsace, Burgundy, and southern France. Wineries and wine shops within these regions will be visited and some of the experiences will be posted on the MyWinePal blog which can be reached through the www.MyWinePal.com website. As it is harvest time in Europe, it should be very interesting to see the harvest in progress as well as tasting the wines from previous vintages. In Reims, several champagne houses will be visited. In Alsace, we will visit the Klipfel winery in Barr. We will also be visiting the Zind Humbrecht winery. Alsace is well known for their white wines, particularly from the riesling grape. In Burgundy, we will take the grand cru tour, tasting premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the region. In the southern France, we will visit, southern Rhone and Languedoc regions. Salut.
