What You Can Expect

Alsace Wine Route: Tasting Tour from Strasbourg

Drive through the pretty village of Ribeauville on your wine tasting tour

Meet your knowledgeable guide at the tourist information office in the middle of Strasbourg, where you’ll climb into a comfortable minivan to start your tour. Head out along the Alsace Wine Route (Routes des Vins d’Alsace in French), which is a 105-mile (170-km) route winding through the rolling hills at the base of the Vosges Mountains. This area is home to hundreds of famous vineyards.

The first stop on your wine tour is the wine area called Mittelbergheim, where the grands crus of Kastelberg, Zotzenberg and Wiebelsberg are located. This area is known for its excellent Riesling wines, which are typically thought of as German. At the first winery of your tour, sample Riesling along with some sylvaner and pinot blanc.

Next, head for Dambach-la-Ville. This village produces more wine than any other in Alsace, including one of the finest Alsatian wines of all — frankstein grand cru. At the second winery stop of the tour, sample wines in a classic wine cellar (caveau in French) while learning how the region’s soil and climate combine to produce exceptional Riesling and gewürztraminer wines.

Take a break at midday for lunch (own expense), followed by a visit to the Ribeauvillé-Riquewihr wine area. There are five grands cru here — Kirchberg, Osterberg, Geisberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. Here again you’ll find the wine production is dominated by Riesling, although other wines of note include Muscat, gewürztraminer and pinot gris.

Spend some time in the charming villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, where you’ll have your last two wine tasting sessions at two of the best-loved wineries in the Alsace. Hear about how some of the chateaux making wine in the area — such as the Hugel and Trimbach families — have been making wine in the area for hundreds of years.

At the conclusion of a day-long wine tour through the Alsace, climb back into the minivan for the relaxing ride back to Strasbourg.

We loved this tour! Alvaro was an incredible guide! He was our personal sommelier at every stop and made sure we got to taste the best of the region. He gave us so much insight into the history of Alsace and how the geography of the Vosges help make this wine so tasty. And as an added bonus, he offered so many great ideas of other things to do while we are in Strasbourg! I loved getting to meet the families behind the wine at each stop and getting to hear their unique stories. I cannot recommend this tour or Alvaro enough!

Had a wonderful day on this tour seeing this beautiful region of Alsace. Our guide, Florence, was extremely friendly and immediately put the group at ease. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines of the region. Having a limited time here, this was an excellent way to learn about the region and see as much as possible but not in a rush. The village of Riquewihr was especially lovely. Well worth doing this tour.

My husband and I had such a great time on the wine tour! This was part of our honeymoon trip to France and this ended up being one of our favorite days. Alvaro our tour guide was so kind and knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour, we did the tour on a Wednesday. Being the only two worked out well for us because it gave us an opportunity to talk more with the wine makers and their families. I highly recommend doing the full day tour because you see a lot more of the Alsace region and the villages were so beautiful!
