    Default Alsace by bike

    Hello
    Any suggestions for a wine producer, fun to visit, within easy bike distance
    from Riquewihr?
    Cheers

    There's this small outfit called Trambeck or Trumbich or something... :P
    People I know speak highly of visits there (seriously).

    Oops! They're in Ribeauvillé, not Riquewihr, but they're fairly close
    together, are they not? (Hmm... Google maps says 7 km -- is that an
    easy bike ride for you?)

    Oh yes, that's Trim Back...

    I believe Hugel is also around there.

    Visited Hugel 1998, did not particularly like, also is walkiong distance,
    not bike.
    Suggestions are not for the dynamic duo (self + Xina) but our neighbours who
    most likely would consider a 7 km return trip slightly strenouos ...
    Cheers

    We'll start calling you Lance...

    I don't particularly like Hugel either, but you did not specify "good
    wine producer" :-)

    Bergheim is 8km from Riquewihr, you find Deiss there, as well as
    Freyburger. Ribeauvillé is even closer, Louis Sipp is there. All of
    these are great.

    At 3km you find Beblenheim, with Bott-Geyl, they are some of the nicest
    people I know and their wine is just like them...

    A little further is Boxler, 12km, in Niedermohrwschwihr.

    To quote myself "a wine producer, fun to visit".

    > Bergheim is 8km from Riquewihr, you find Deiss there, as well as

    Deiss, rhymes with price ... -y, but admittedly good, Freyburger have not
    yet tasted ...

    > At 3km you find Beblenheim, with Bott-Geyl, they are some of the nicest

    NOW you are, to make an incomprehensible pune, or play on words, cooking
    with choucroute (hint: in Swedish, the words for cabbage and coal are,
    spelling apart, the same). And good Rutger will find 3 km just bearable -
    just.

    Boxler? Hmmm - if our dealings with the bank goes well, and we can start
    doing our week trips to Alsace, that might be something to consider ...

    Cheers

    Tell the bank Boxler is definitely not sub-prime Alsace.

    Scheidecker at Rue des Merles, Mittelwihr are genuine small growers
    with a good range of drier Alsatians - that's wine not dogs. their
    generics are good and they have some Mandelberg and Sporen GCs as
    well. Good hunting - don't fall off the bike on he way back.

    Boxler! Now you're talking. Where are Schoffit and Rolly Gassman? I
    was just in Chicago today and picked up some wine at Sam's -- I had a
    look at their Alsace supply and was stunned to see both the prices and
    the alcohol levels. $45 for a non-GC Alsace Riesling no longer sounds
    like much of a bargain, and PG and Gewurz at 15% ABV don't appeal much,
    either, especially with the RS creep that's been taking place there.
    It's an ironic world when top-flight Kabinett Riesling such as the
    Meulenhof '07 that I picked up today for $17 a bottle becomes the QPR
    leader for dry(ish) Riesling.

    Alsace is definitely feeling the (dubiouos) benefit of (alleged) global
    warming. Meanwhile, back in Germany ...
    On our forced pit-stop in Karlsruhe-Durlach, for a very good lunch, we had
    the Durlacher Turmberg Riesling Kabinett Trocken 2007 - despite somewhat
    backbreaking name, delightfully dry, well structured, light (11% abv), with
    both fruit and acidity, and not smelling like a 50s gas station (that's
    petrol station for the limeys), and (bit of drumroll here, please) at
    cellardoor, EU 7.50. Unfortunately, said cellardoor was closed when we next
    passed through the neighbourhood. Arrr! Foiled again!

    No, the good growers of Alsace are no doubt in for a change in style,
    whether they will or they nil. Mme Baur is bitterly complaining that she can
    no longer make the Rieslings she want to - summer's too warm.

    Cheers
