    <p>Alsace is protected from rain and western winds by the Vosges Mountains. It's also one of the driest areas of France. According to the classic Alsatian wine law, only seven (mainly white) varieties can be grown here: Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Sylvaner, Muscat and Pinot Noir. Alsace wines are dry, deliciously aromatic and well balanced on the palate.</p>
    <p>Bordeaux, the world's best-known wine region, currently has 57 appellations and covers an area of 120,000 hectares which makes it the largest wine region in France. Thanks to its unique location we traditionally divide Bordeaux into the left and right banks. The dominant grape of the left bank (Médoc and Graves) is Cabernet Sauvignon, which accounts for up to 70% of production. The right bank is dominated by Merlot.</p>
