Description

Alsace is probably one of the most fascinating regions of France when it comes to tourism. 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.

Why not begin the day with a stop in the Mittelbergheim wine producing region? The area is home to the Zotzenberg, Kastelberg and Wiebelsberg Grand Crus and the soils found here are particularly favorable for Riesling. Here, you will have the option experience your first Alsace wine discovery by tasting a selection of different wines including Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner and Riesling.

Continue on to Dambach la ville wine area. The village itself is considered to be located at the heart of the Alsace wine region and is home to the Grand Cru Frankstein. Riesling and Gewurztraminer are particularly well-adapted to the well-drained granite-mica scree which filters water and retains heat well. Enjoy a second wine tasting session in a typical "caveau", the name given to the local wineries.

You may ask for some free time for lunch, after which you may 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.

Here famous wine growers 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 where you will have the option to taste samples from some of the most highly selected wineries in Alsace. After this, you may return to Strasbourg to end the tour.
