“Decouverte” Wine Tasting
A commented wine tasting (available in French or English or German) is a convivial way to spend an hour or so, to learn about and to appreciate Alsace wines in the unique setting of the 12th century stone-flagged ceremonial cellar.
One of the Confrérie Councillors will tutor 4 wines, each a “noble” Alsace grape variety, explaining their origin and characteristics, food pairings, with background details about the Alsace wine region and especially the history of the Confrérie Saint-Etienne and its Château.
A slice of Kougelhopf cake will be served during the tasting and – if possible – the Oenothèque, the historic wine cellar with more than 60 000 bottles going back to the 1834 vintage, may be visited.
Timing : around 75 minutes.
For groups of minimum 10 and maximum 120 people.
Available all year round. The Chancellery will be pleased to adapt this tasting to suit individual requirements.
It is possible to serve finger-food to perfectly match each wine served, such as : egg-plant caviar on pancetta, red mullet on blini, foie-gras on gingerbread, Munster cheese with acacia honey…
