Two shots from the recent trip to Alsace; tasting notes etc to follow at some point. First photograph is from the Hugel tasting room in the centre of Riquewihr. The town is another of those pretty Hansel and Gretel type places that abound in Alsace and is the centre of the regions wine route.
The second photo was taken at Kuentz-Bas (pronounced kuntz-bar). Having emerged from the cellar yours truly neglected to reset the cameras settings from a high ISO. This photo was thus pretty much de-saturated and flat; a tweek in photoshop removed the last vestiges of colour leaving a more satisfying image I feel.
Kuentz-Bas based in Husseren-les-hateaux are one of Alsace’s smaller producers. This stair well leads from the main courtyard to the family living quarters.
