June is all about Alsace Wines in the Big Apple. For the first time ever, Alsace is hosting Alsace Wines Month in New York and invites you to enjoy Alsace Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer at a number of Manhattan and Brooklyn destinations. To celebrate Alsace Wines Month, we are offering two Eater enthusiasts and a friend apiece the chance to taste the Alsace Wines tasting menu at Brasserie (100 East 53rd Street at Park Avenue). To enter, go to Just Add Food and enter your details. You can expect to hear from us before the weekend if you have been lucky enough to win.
Aromatic and fresh, these wines from north-eastern France combine lovely, unoaked fruit character with a touch of minerality. And since they're from one of the most northerly wine regions in Europe, they come with the sort of finesse and complexity that makes other wines blush.
