  • Half-day Alsace wine tour from Strasbourg
  • Get an overview of France’s world-renowned Alsace wine region from an expert guide

  • Soak up the atmosphere of a typical French wine cellar

Begin your morning or afternoon Alsace wine tour in Strasbourg, where you’ll meet your guide and climb into an awaiting 8-passenger minivan. Travel along a gorgeous road known locally as the Route des Vins d’Alsace, or the Alsace Wine Route. Follow this 105-mile (170 km) route as it winds through rolling hills near the Vosges Mountains through land that contains hundreds of famous Alsatian wineries.

The first stop on your tour is in the town of Obernai, with its characteristic German-style half-timbered buildings and pretty cobblestoned streets. Join your guide for a walking tour of the town, ending at a local winery to sample some of the region’s wine.

Find out how the soil, climate, and sun combine to create the perfect conditions under which the Alsace region produces world-renowned white wines. Taste most of the seven grape varietals that are grown in the area, including gewürztraminer and Riesling, noting how complex and different the flavors can be.

Get back on the Alsace Wine Route to end up at your next stop, a wine tasting in a classic Alsatian wine cellar (caveau). Find out why cellars such as this provide the ideal environment for the aging and storing of wine.

After the visit to the wine cellar, enjoy the scenery out of the minivan windows as you make your way back to Strasbourg.

We have done a number of wine tastings in many countries and this was one of the best. Our guide, Julie, was great--she knew and provided information about the places we drove through and the wines we were tasting. There were six of us and we all had the opportunity to taste and ask questions and participate. We prefer red wines and Julie made sure we were able to taste them, but this area is known for its whites and they were good also. Even if you prefer reds, this is a great tour to take.

Small group tour to a couple of wineries in Alsace. Both establishments were different and offered excellent information and wine to taste. Very nice way to see the country side as the scenery was fabulous. I would highy recommend this tour....only hiccup was determining where the pickup spot was!

Not worth the money. Having said that, our tour guide Florence made up for it with her knowledge of the region. The wineries visited were mediocre.

As this was a small group tour, in fact we were only two, it was ideal. Our driver was generous with his knowledge of the area and then we enjoyed two visits to vineyards and met the wine-makers who explained their personal growing process to us. Really interesting, well worthwhile and of course we bought wine.

My husband and I visited Strasbourg in May. We booked the half-day tour and were absolutely delighted to spend the afternoon touring two vineyards on the Alsace Wine Route with Pauline. Pauline truly loves what she does and was incredibly informative - we felt like locals by the end of the day, as she shared not only her knowledge of the art of Alsatian winemaking but also local history as we traveled. There wasn't a question we asked that she wasn't able to answer, and we asked a LOT of questions. A wonderful experience and highly recommended!
