ALSACE WINE TOUR HALF DAY SHARED FROM COLMAR
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Location: COLMAR, GRAND EST
At first sight, the Alsatian Wine Route offers a true picture-postcard image; fresh vines climbing to the forests of the Vosges, ruins of castles dating back to the Middle Ages, villages with old ramparts that only protect the happiness of the flowered lanes, hospitable wine stubs, and lively cellars. But, it also pictures ancient abodes, Romanesque churches or fountains generously left by the Renaissance.
Renowned for its aromatic white wines, the region is ideally suited with a dry and sunny climate, complex geology, favorable soils and excellent exposure. During this half day tour you will wine taste in 2 wineries so as to find out all there is to know about the 7 different types of Alsace wines.
The Colmar wine region is on your program for this half day tour. Departing from the Alsatian wine capital, the tour will take you to quaint small villages such as Eguisheim, Pfaffenheim, Rouffach or Turckheim. In the villages, meet the wine makers who will explain the expertise needed behind wine-making.
