Along the oldest wine route in France, you will find many traditional Alsace wineries and half-timbered houses, vineyard-covered foothills, and verdant plains. Stop in one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”, like Eguisheim (where Pope Leo IX was born), Riquewihr (one of Alsace’s gems; its excellent wines match the excellence of its architecture) or Mittelbergheim (home to the Zotzenberg Grand Cru, the only Sylvaner AOC in the world), to enjoy lunch at a cozy winstub (typical Alsatian restaurant).
Alsace wineries and their winemakers are proud to share with visitors the best their terroir has to offer: the perfect combination of soil, savoir-faire passed on from generation to generation and their 7 grapes (Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat), have contributed to make Alsatian wines famous and respected the world over. Join the local vignerons for an insightful afternoon learning about their craft and enjoy a first-class tasting of wines of Alsace, including some of its celebrated 51 Grands Crus.
