Overview Location: Strasbourg, France
Meet your guide in central Strasbourg for your morning or afternoon wine tour. After boarding your 8-passenger minivan, travel away from the hustle and bustle of Strasbourg, and along the beautiful Alsace Wine Route (Route des Vins d'Alsace), a 105-mile (170-km) stretch of road that meanders through the bright-green foothills of the Vosges mountains and past Alsace’s prized vineyards.

Your first stop along the route is the pretty little town of Obernai. Hop out for a walking tour around Obernai’s winding streets, full of typical half-timbered houses decorated in multicolored tiles, before arriving at a local winery for a wine-tasting session.

Learn how the region’s dry and sunny climate, complex geology, favorable soils and sun exposure produce Alsace’s aromatic white wine. Note the range of fruity, light, dry and spicy flavors as you sample most or all of the seven different varietals that the region produces, including Riesling and gewürztraminer wine.

Continue along the Alsace Wine Route to your second stop, a typical Alsace caveau (wine cellar). Taste more local wine here, and learn how the cave’s cold temperatures and darkness allow for optimal storage and aging.

After your second wine tasting, relax on the scenic drive back to Strasbourg.
