Alsace Wine Tour Itinerary
Start your Alsace wine tour day with a quick ride from Paris via high speed rail to Strasbourg. From the Strasbourg station, it’s a short walk to the nearby Tourist Office to meet your guide. Established over 60 years ago, the Alsace Wine Route features grape varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Sylvaner. This engrossing day covers the Mittelbergheim and Barr regions, home to Zotzenberg, Kastelberg, and Wiebelsberg, all Grand Crus.
Continue on to Dambach la ville wine area. Enjoy a second wine tasting session in a typical caveau, or wine cellar.
After some free time for lunch, move on to the medieval towns of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, ground zero for 5 Grand Crus appellations: Geisberg, Kirchberg, Osterberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen.
Beyond wine-tasting, this day is a real trip back in time to experience quaint villages dating to the Middle Ages.
