Alsace has been celebrated for its lovely, dry white wines for centuries. In the heart of Alsace’s finest district, the Haut-Rhin, Pierre Sparr follows a 300-year-old tradition of winemaking that began during the reign of King Louis XIV. Since 1680, the Sparr family’s passion for viticulture and winemaking has passed from one generation to the next. The family’s devotion to the land, their attention to the smallest detail and their uncompromising quest for excellence can been seen in every bottle bearing the Sparr family crest.

On the palate, this Gewurztraminer is a full-bodied wine with solid structure and flavors that mirror the aromas plus a hint of anise. The rich, mouth-filling character lingers, seducing another sip.
