“Welcome to all of you present here, I extend a special welcome in Saint-Emilion, one of the capitals of French winemaking heritage. As the mayor of Guebwiller, I am very happy and proud of this festival dedicated to wine, wine as a mirror of heritage, of identity. This is also what we perceive from these 67 editions of the wine fair.

It is an honor for us jurats and winemakers of Saint-Emilion, for being here with you for this celebration of Alsacien wines in Guebwiller. The jurade, brotherhood, eight centuries old, also transmits our culture. It is part of the life of our city and does not hesitate to travel the world to promote its wines, as it does today.

The concept of Wine trip is to mount an operation in 17 stages in France, in which we go to meet the public and always in a very friendly manner. With winemakers who accompany us at every stage we have the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation represented, also Puisseguin Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.

If you do not go to Bordeaux in the corner, here they come to us and it’s very nice.

It is a small truck in the center, it’s true that it’s nice. It makes you want to settle here, it’s great.

I find it awesome. It is magnificent. This is a collector’s item, it reminds me of my childhood.

Sounds a little like food truck, it’s funny, except that it is wine.

Among all the Alsace wine, it is good that there is a little red wine.

It changes a little yes.

Very nice promotion. Nice selection. In my opinion this is a very good idea.

In this operation, we have 16 different wines with different terroirs, grape varieties that are also different, it helps to show people that there really is a diversity, a local mosaic of Saint-Emilion, show that they are accessible wines. I’m here as a sommelier to help also to put words to their feelings, their emotions, and therefore to advance them by giving them the keys to the tasting.

We came here first, it’s a safe bet simply.

It is light. Fruity. Light, fruity.

It goes with the mood of Guebwiller, Alsace, it’s very nice.

The Guebwiller wine fair is a key event of Guebwiller, for tourists, for the locals, and I think it is important that a beacon appellation such as Saint-Emilion is part of the fair to set before its qualities and wine styles that are ultimately very modern and are in high demand.”
