Celebrate the Wines of Alsace


During the month of June, Binny’s Beverage Depot is teaming up with Wines of Alsace to celebrate some of the greatest (and most affordable!) white wines from France.


You know Alsace, right? It’s that little region that stretches along France’s eastern border, tucked in next to Germany, running along the west bank of the Rhine. The region is famous for its dynamic take on white varietals – riesling, pinot gris, gewurztraminer, and more. These wines often carry a fresh, focused style that offers versatile pairing with an array of foods – from Thai to Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian, French, Mexican … the list goes on….



So what are we doing to celebrate?


First, we’re hosting an interactive online tasting the evening of June 28th. Hosted by Patrick Fegan of Chicago Wine School, who will lead us through several selected wines, and who will field questions about the region. Be sure to check out the Binny’s twitter stream @binnysbev and also @drinkalsace, and watch the Binny’s Blog and the Wines of Alsace facebook page for more info and the chance to pre-purchase the featured wines before the night approaches.


Then join us on the afternoon of Saturday, June 30th for a free tasting of our favorites from Alsace. All Binny’s locations will feature a staff-picked lineup of great examples from the region. That’s the gist of it, but you can find more info on the tasting here. It’s a great opportunity to discover some new favorites!


By the way, be sure to check out savings on several great wines from Alsace in our June Wine Sale.

    • It’s a staff-pick tasting, so it’s up to each individual store. There’s some decent pinot noir coming out of Alsace, so let the wine staff at your favorite Binny’s know that you’d love a red or two before the day of the event.
