Alsatian vinegrowers have been producing wine since the Roman conquest. Alsace production is very exclusive among French production. It is easy to understand it from the name of the grape-varieties used for the production of the wine, such as Riesling, Gewurztraminer or Sylvaner. More than 90% of the wines in Alsace are white.
