Alsace Wine Route: Half-Day Tasting Tour from Strasbourg

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.

    The trip was pleasant and the driver well informed and friendly. We visited two small wineries and the wines selected gave us a taste of the different grape varieties of the Alsace. One of the winegrowers was into organic farming and that was very interesting....More
