Taste Some of the Most Interesting Wines of Alsace
Depart for a half-day morning or afternoon tour along the Alsace wine route to discover some of the most fascinating wines of France. Renowned for its aromatic white wines, the Alsace wine region is ideally suited with its dry and sunny climate, complex geology, favorable soils and excellent exposure. During this half-day wine tasting tour from Strasbourg, you will taste wine in 2 different wineries. As you experience a tasting session, learn about the 7 different types of Alsace wines. Local grape varieties include Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Muscat to name the most famous.
Or Visit Some of the Most Authentic Alsace Villages
This small group half-day trip to authentic Alsace villages and small towns departs from Strasbourg and heads towards the Northern Alsace Wine Route. As you drive along this scenic Route, you will reach some of the most beautiful villages located in the area that are surrounded by vineyards. One of your first stops will certainly be the village of Barr. This superb Alsace village that has retained parts of its medieval walls, was located on the salt route. Unknown from many tourists, it is one of our preferred destinations. Since it is located off the beaten tracks, the limited number of visitors make it a real treat if you want to get the real feel of Alsace. Its well preserved historical city center is dotted with a great number of traditional flower decked half timbered houses located along the twisted cobbled streets. Other great options that your guide can include are the villages of Mittlebergheim – with its Rue Principale, Gothic Churches and geranium covered wells or Andlau and its famous abbey that dates back to the 9th century.
Or Why Not Combine The Two Options
This tour enables you to mix and match according to your preferences. Your guide will be happy to adapt the tour to your wishes and suggest the best possible options depending on your choices. We highly recommend that you send us a note suggesting what your preferences would be, but a small chat with your guide before the departure of the tour will be the best way for you to really indicate what you would like to day during this private half day tour of Alsace region from Strasbourg.
After the tour, return to Strasbourg and end of our services. We suggest that you take a look at our full day tour Pearls of Alsace(opens in a new tab) that will take you to Haut Koenigsbourg castle, Colmar and Eguisheim. Other options are to visit the villages of Riquewihr or Kaysersberg.
