Your full-day wine tour starts in the morning from the tourist office in central Strasbourg. Board your luxury minivan with your expert guide, and leave the busy city behind as you travel along the beautiful Alsace Wine Route (Route des Vins d'Alsace). The 105-mile (170-km) stretch of road snakes through the bright-green foothills of the Vosges mountains and features hundreds of Alsace’s prized vineyards. You’ll be treated to views of rolling vine-covered hills and quaint red-roofed villages around every turn.
Stop in the Mittelbergheim wine area, home to the Zotzenberg, Kastelberg and Wiebelsberg grands crus. The soils here are perfect for producing Riesling wine — a varietal known as a German wine but produced extensively in Alsace. Head to your first winery to taste a selection of Alsatian wines including Pinot blanc, Sylvaner and Riesling.
Continue to Dambach-la-Ville, the largest wine-producing village in Alsace, whose vineyards produce one of the finest Alsatian wines: frankstein grand cru. Enjoy a second tasting session at a traditional caveau (wine cellar) and hear how the area’s soil creates crisp Riesling and gewürztraminer wine.
After some free time for lunch (own expense), depart for the Ribeauvillé-Riquewihr wine area, surrounded by five grand cru appellations: Geisberg, Kirchberg, Osterberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. Riesling grapes reign supreme here, but pinot gris, Muscat and gewürztraminer varietals are also excellent.
Visit the picturesque medieval villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr for your last wine-tasting session at some of the most highly praised wineries in the region. Learn about famous local wine growers including the Trimbach family and Hugel family, who have been producing wine here for centuries!
After a full day wine tasting your way through the Alsace region, relax on the scenic drive back to Strasbourg.
