The Wine road Alsace

Panoramic routes, breakating views, magnificient archtiecture and delicious wine.

Alsace is a wine-growing region…a tradition that dates back to the Roman times.

But what most people don’t know is that “la Route des Vins d’Alsace” (the Wine Road in Alsace), was the first wine road to be created in France!

After the Second World War the winegrowers in Alsace got together to create something to boost the local economy.

Nowadays more than 60 villages and tows are part of this panoramic road.

“Les plus beaux villages en France”

Some of these medieval villages have received the tittle “le plus beau village en France” (the most breautiful village en France), “le village préfére des Français” (the favorite village of the French people).

Eguisheim, Ribeauvillé, Riquewhir, Kaysersberg, Turckheim…

…chosing which medieval village to visit is a difficult task…but don’t worry, you can’t go wrong!

They were chosen to be part of the Wine Road precisely because they have meet all the criteira: parts of the fortification walls, half-timbered and renaissance buildings, romanesque churches, local cuisine, winemaking and tourism.

If you have a cellar in particular that you want to visit – and we manage to get a slot – we can create the programme around that cellar. Otherwise, I work with different wineries. The choice will be based on their availability.

**Most wineries charge a fee for the wine tasting**
