Description

Follow the legendary Alsace wine route and taste some of the most prestigious “Grands Crus” wines delicately crafted by passionate winemakers, with this full-day wine tour.
 
The Alsace Wine Route winds its way from north to south, for more than 170 kilometers (106 miles) along the eastern foothills of the Vosges. It has become famous the world over for its exceptional natural beauty as it leads visitors across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills, and through quaint villages.
 
Begin the day with a stop in the Mittelbergheim / Barr wine producing regions.

Enjoy a second wine tasting session in a typical “caveau”, the name given to the local wineries.
 
After some free time for lunch depart for the Ribeauvillé/Riquewihr wine producing area that is surrounded by 5 Grand Crus appellations: Geisberg, Kirchberg, Osterberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. If Riesling is without a doubt the king of grapes in this area, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Gewürztraminer are also known to produce excellent wines on the neighboring soils.
 
Famous wine growers in the area include the Trimbach family that have been making wine since 1626 or the Hugel family who only began their activity in 1639! Not only will you be amazed by the beauty of these two medieval towns, it is also here that you will experience your afternoon tasting in one of the most highly selected wineries so as to complete your Alsace wine tasting experience, before returning to Strasbourg.
