This French vintage travel poster was commissioned by the SNCF (Société nationale des chemins de fer français - French National Railway Company). The poster highlights Alsatian wine by featuring a vineyard before a loping green landscape and a romantic old church in the distance. Alsace wine is primarily white with Germanic influences, producing dry and sweet varieties. The poster was one of a series in which the SNCF commissioned contemporary regional artists to depict French languages, historical provinces, and cultural regions.
