What to expect

In the morning, meet your English speaking guide who is an expert on Alsace Wines and who will go over the itinerary and program with you. Then, board your spacious, comfortable, air conditioned minivan and begin to make your way to the Alsace wine route.

Your guide will first take you to the Barr/Andlau wine producing region. Here, taste fabulous Rieslings that originate from the Kirchberg (marl and limestone), Wiebelsberg (sandy sandstone) and Moenchberg (marls, limestone and slate) Grands Crus. The hallmark of Alsace Grand Crus wines is their minerality. Some of the most famous wine makers that produce these Grands Crus include Kreydenweiss, Stoeffler or Albert Seltz. You'll stop at one of the local wineries for a wine tasting session of the local Grands Crus.

Then, move on to discover a most unique and confidential Grand Cru: Frankstein (literally ‘the stone of the French’). Divided into several sectors of the charming little town of Dambach la Ville, this Grand Cru is characterized by a complex geological substratum, combining granite on its upper parts with shelly limestone, with sandstone lower down. Depending on availability, you also may discover biodynamic winemaking (a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming, but which includes various esoteric concepts) in wineries such as Domaine Schaeffer Woerly or Beck-Hartweg.

Finally reach the southern part of the Alsace wine route near Ribeauvillé and discover emblematic Grands Crus such as Altenberg, Kanzlerberg, Osterbrg. It is in this part of the wine region that you will discover local Muscat. Alsace Muscat is distinguished from the sweet Muscats of the South of France by its dry character. Harvested very ripe, “late harvest” and “Selection de Grains Nobles” Gewurztraminer ranging from sweet to viscous, possess exceptional richness and extraordinary aromatic complexity.

After the final tasting, you'll be driven back to Strasbourg.
