  • This activity will end right where it started.
    Begin your morning or afternoon Alsace wine tour in Strasbourg, where you’ll meet your guide and climb into an awaiting 8-passenger minivan. Travel along a gorgeous road known locally as the Route des Vins d’Alsace, or the Alsace Wine Route. Follow this 105-mile (170 km) route as it winds through rolling hills near the Vosges Mountains through land that contains hundreds of famous Alsatian wineries.

    The first stop on your tour is in the town of Obernai, with its characteristic German-style half-timbered buildings and pretty cobblestoned streets. Join your guide for a walking tour of the town, ending at a local winery to sample some of the region’s wine.

    Find out how the soil, climate, and sun combine to create the perfect conditions under which the Alsace region produces world-renowned white wines. Taste most of the seven grape varietals that are grown in the area, including gewürztraminer and Riesling, noting how complex and different the flavors can be.

    Get back on the Alsace Wine Route to end up at your next stop, a wine tasting in a classic Alsatian wine cellar (caveau). Find out why cellars such as this provide the ideal environment for the aging and storing of wine.

    After the visit to the wine cellar, enjoy the scenery out of the minivan windows as you make your way back to Strasbourg.

    Our tour guide/sommelier Florence was amazing!! She was knowledgeable in so many ways history, the Alsace regions and truly a wine expert plus Alsatian cuisine. The stop in Odenai was nice and getting a glimpse of a stork nest on the roof was fascinating. The 1/2 day event was perfect and We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend especially having Florence as a guide. Truly a wonderful experience with great wines and winery hosts!! Shelley & Kevin

    LOVED this tour! Pauline was great and knowledgeable. We visited two vineries and tasted about 14 delicious wines from Alsace. The scenery was stunning, people so kind and generous, and the whole experience was something we would do over again. Highly recommend.

    Florence met us right on time in front of a hotel in Strasbourg. She was bright and friendly and had a very nice minivan. There were 4 in our party, and another three people joined us. We visited two wineries. Florence actually poured the wine and described the vintage. She's very knowledgeable. We had a great time. We could have done a similar tour with Viking, but opted to join a smaller group on our own.

    We enjoyed the wine tasting at both wineries. But, it should be known that this is exclusively a winetasting. It is not

    We enjoyed the wine tasting at both wineries. But, it should be known that this is exclusively a winetasting. It is not a scenic drive in the countryside.

    Florence was a fabulous tour guide. During our drive to the first vineyard she spoke about what we were driving by and what we were about to see. She took us to 2 perfect vineyards and did a fantastic job explaining each wine. It was a perfect 4 hours!

    Florence was fabulous. Great tour guide and driver. The first stop at Noelle’s was excellent. Wonderful ambiance and delicious wines. The second stop was more commercialized. Glad we had a few minutes for the Gingerbread Store.

    Great guide, expensive price

    , Oct 2021
    We had a lovely tour with Pauline who was absolutely fantastic. The first winery was just OK, although I enjoyed the explanation of the winemaking process. I enjoyed the second winery more as it felt more relaxed and we got to taste a lot more wine. The reason for giving only 3 stars is purely for the price, we felt that it was quite expensive for what we got in comparison to previous tours. Couldn't have asked for a better guide though!

    Had an amazing time on this tour! It was so beautiful to see the small towns along the wine route along with the included wineries. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and even gave us some great local insights into other activities to do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area!
