Enjoy a full day wine tour departing from Colmar. Discover the unique Alsace wine route as you drive through beautiful countryside and authentic villages. Your day will include 3 visits and guided tastings in carefully selected wineries known for the quality of their wines. The grand majority of the wineries of Alsace are family owned and have been so for generations. As you meet the owners, discover the large range of wines that are produced here and the passion needed to craft such wines.Description
In the morning, pick up from a centrally located point in Colmar and depart with your English speaking guide towards the Alsace wine route. Your morning will be dedicated to the Riquewihr / Ribeauville wine producing area. Here, you will participate in two guided wine tastings of Alsace wines. There are many chances that you will be welcomed by the wine maker or someone of the family who will happily explain the specificity of the local "terroir" and how this has a large influence on the type of wine produced here. During your tasting you will certainly have the opportunity to taste fantastic Rieslings, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and many more.
Then enjoy some free time in Riquewihr or the surrounding area for lunch (own expense). After lunch, the tour will head south so that you may discover another part of the Alsace wine region. On the southern Alsace wine route the vines are mainly found on steep slopes and often require grape harvesters to rope up. Here some of the Grands Crus that you might encounter include Grands Crus Eichberg, Pfersigberg, Vorbourg, or Zinnkoepflé. 1 guided tasting will be done in this part of the wine region before returning to Colmar.Highlights
