Winery of the Month: Domaine Sparr-Baumann
This month of December, we would like to take you on a journey to Alsace, France. Alsace white wines are particularly popular during Christmas and New Year Celebrations in Europe and all over the world.
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 is also a bit of a mish mash. For instance, Germanic grape varieties like Gewurztraminer and Riesling dominate the French département, but in Alsace they are produced in a very different style.
So this month we would like to introduce to you the secular Domaine Sparr Baumann. Indeed, since 1634 the SPARR Family has been writing the story of Alsace winegrowers fascinatedly. Today the Heir of 11 generations of winemakers, insures the sustainability of this dynastic know-how...
