Itinerary

PRIVATE DAY TOUR: ALSACE FULL DAY WINE TOUR

The tour begins in the morning, for a full day wine tour of the Alsace vineyards. The region boasts centuries of wine production with many treasured and sought-after cuvées. Given the German influence in the region, wines here are mostly varietal wines, bottled in the characteristic Alsace tall bottle; flûte d’Alsace. The vineyards are concentrated in a thin band, from north to south, protected by the Vosges Mountains in the west. The cooler northern climate is preferred mainly by white grapes, and some of the most unique white wines in the world can be found, including late-harvest wines as well as the rare highly complex and concentrated ice-wines. Established over 60 years ago, the Alsace Wine Route flows over 170km from the Rhine valley to the Vosges Mountains. It is considered the most beautiful wine route in France and houses grape varieties such as riesling, gewürztraminer and sylvaner. The route places you in a backdrop of a rolling vine-covered landscape, perfectly unified with quaint narrowed-street villages, charming flower decked houses and church steeples.

Begin the day with a stop in the Mittelbergheim and Barr wine producing regions, home to the Grand Crus of Zotzenberg, Kastelberg, Wiebelsberg and Kirchberg, with soils particularly favourable for Riesling. Experience your first taste of Alsace wine with a tasting at a winery who produces different wines including Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner and Riesling.

Continue on to Dambach la ville wine area, considered to be the heart of the Alsace wine region and home to the Grand Cru Frankstein. Riesling and Gewürztraminer are particularly well adapted to the well-drained granite-mica scree soil, which drains water and retains heat during the evenings. Enjoy a second wine tasting in a typical caveau, the name given to the local wineries.

After some free time for lunch, move on to the wine producing area of the medieval towns of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, surrounded by 5 Grand Crus appellations: Geisberg, Kirchberg, Osterberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen.

Riesling is without a doubt the king of grapes in this area however, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Gewürztraminer also produce excellent wines on the neighbouring soils.

Famous wine growers include the Trimbach family that have been making wine since 1626 or the Hugel family who began in 1639!

Not only will you be amazed by the beauty of these two towns, but you will also be able to complete your Alsace experience with another wine tasting at the most highly selected winery. Return to Strasbourg. This private tour ensures you enjoy full attention from your guide.
