This Wine Region of France has become famous the world over for its exceptional natural beauty. It leads visitors across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills and through quaint small towns and villages dating back to the middle ages.
On this small group full day wine tour departing Colmar, we will first pick you up in a centrally located meeting point. This full day Alsace wine trip begins with a drive along the mythical alsatian wine route. Here you will cross / visit some of the most beautiful Alsace villages recommended by your tour guide. This is where we will stop so that you may experience tastings of a large range of wines including Grands Cru. Wine Tastings in local wine cellars include Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Rieslings, Sylvaner and many more. During the day tour, all tastings are commented by someone of the family or by the cellar master. This insures you get the best explanations on the expertise and know how that has been transmitted through centuries of wine-making.

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!
