Visit & Tasting in a Micro Brewery Hidden in the Vineyards
Alsace is known for its scenic Alsace Wine Route and the great wine tastings that are possible. Today however, experience another great local delicacy of Alsace on this private Beer & Food tour from Colmar as you visit some of the best beer breweries of the region while tasting some delicious local specialties.
In the morning we will come and pick you up at your centrally located accommodation in Colmar. At first, meet your English speaking driver/guide who will be with you throughout the day on this private tour. After reviewing the day’s itinerary and program begin your day tour with a visit of a traditional micro-brewery. This small enchanting Brewery was one of the first micro-breweries of Alsace – they have been producing local beer since 1998. Set in the middle of the Alsace vineyards, here we will have you discover local beers, sipping in a tranquil area of the biergarten. Depending on the day of the week, it will be possible for you to visit the brewery and of course a special tasting will be organized for you and your party.
Visit & Tasting in a Local Artisan Brewery
The day is also a great opportunity to visit the villages of Alsace region. One such village is Riquewihr where you will enjoy a guided tour and some time for personal discovery. Moving on, you will reach Kaysersberg another very authentic Alsace village with its timbered houses and cobblestone streets; here you will have some time for lunch (optional).
In the afternoon, arrive in the Welche district and visit a traditional Artisan Brewery. Now part of the Eaux de Vie museum it is the de Miscault family that has taken over, calling upon Joel Tournier, a master brewer, to take over the production. Three different versions of the local beer are brewed here on site including blonde, amber or white beer. All the beers elaborated here use organic malt and the residues are given over to a local farmer who recycles them by feeding his cows. You will enjoy a visit and tasting at the brewery and why not take a look at the Brandy museum just facing?
Surprise Tastings of Other Local Specialties Along the Way
After the visit, we will take you to different places depending on your choice. Your guide will suggest other authentic visits such as local farms that produce the Munster cheese or some of the best Jams of Alsace produced in Nidermorschwihr.
After the visits, return to Colmar.

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.
Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.
Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!
Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.
Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!
