Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your knowledgeable guide at the tourist information office in the middle of Strasbourg, where you’ll climb into a comfortable minivan to start your tour. Head out along the Alsace Wine Route (Routes des Vins d’Alsace in French), which is a 105-mile (170-km) route winding through the rolling hills at the base of the Vosges Mountains. This area is home to hundreds of famous vineyards.

The first stop on your wine tour is the wine area called Mittelbergheim, where the grands crus of Kastelberg, Zotzenberg and Wiebelsberg are located. This area is known for its excellent Riesling wines, which are typically thought of as German. At the first winery of your tour, sample Riesling along with some sylvaner and pinot blanc.

Next, head for Dambach-la-Ville. This village produces more wine than any other in Alsace, including one of the finest Alsatian wines of all — frankstein grand cru. At the second winery stop of the tour, sample wines in a classic wine cellar (caveau in French) while learning how the region’s soil and climate combine to produce exceptional Riesling and gewürztraminer wines.

Take a break at midday for lunch (own expense), followed by a visit to the Ribeauvillé-Riquewihr wine area. There are five grands cru here — Kirchberg, Osterberg, Geisberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. Here again you’ll find the wine production is dominated by Riesling, although other wines of note include Muscat, gewürztraminer and pinot gris.

Spend some time in the charming villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, where you’ll have your last two wine tasting sessions at two of the best-loved wineries in the Alsace. Hear about how some of the chateaux making wine in the area — such as the Hugel and Trimbach families — have been making wine in the area for hundreds of years.

At the conclusion of a day-long wine tour through the Alsace, climb back into the minivan for the relaxing ride back to Strasbourg.

Florence was awesome! She shared so much knowledge and made the tour educational and interesting. She also helped us arrange grouping our shipping from all three wineries. The wineries that she took us to were very diverse and all equally interesting with great tastes. This trip is a must do and so worth the price.

Fantastic day out

Florence, our guide, knowledge of the area was incredible. She was incredibly passionate about the Alsace and looked after everyone on the trip. The vineyards we visited were all very different, that’s something I really appreciated. I learned so much on the trip! We will definitely be back to the Alsace. One watch out if your vegan or vegetarian or looking for Kosher it is very difficult to find anything to eat in the village where you stop for lunch. So maybe bring your own food on the trip.

The Best Wine Tour!
Deborah_Moos

Florence, our Guide, was magnificent. She has a completely transparent love of wine, Alsace, and the lovely people whom make the wine. She has immense knowledge of the region and a gift for easily sharing her knowledge. She is fun and friendly. She makes you feel like you are the first tourist she has ever spoken to on the tour. The vineyards and owners were enchanting! They were all unique, yet identical in their ambition and love of the grape and the land. Andre was simply adorable. I would love to be his neighbor, assistant, and friend. He could teach the entire world a thing, or two. Noelle...you are amazing. Martine...you are wise and elegant. Thank you for a perfect day. All of you...Perfection. Merci!

Alsace Wine Tastingr from Strasbourg

Be sure to book the longer tour. [about 8 hour] It's Worth it. We visited 3 wineries with up to 6 wines at each. The tour guide spoke excellent English, was humerus and quite knowledgeable of the region. We passed trough several villages with lunch in one. The van stopped near attractions, which minimized walking.

Great Wine Tour - a highlight of our trip

This tour was excellent. The 3 wineries were quite different from each other & the tastings were numerous - at least 10 at each stop. The drive itself was so picturesque & our guide stopped at her favorite vistas for photo ops. Our lunch stop in Riquewihr, a truly charming town along the route, was just perfect. We enjoyed the local wines so much that we purchased a dozen bottles & shipped them back to the US.
