What To Expect

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.

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.

Incredible Alsatian Wines
KAREN_J, Sep 2023
The vintner and our driver gave us a fantastic presentation of each oh the 14 wines we sampled from the Alsace. I learned so much more about these wines (mostly white) than I have in my liquor store! Also, the drive through this beautiful part of France was magnifique!
Excellent introduction to the wines of Alsace.

This tour was amazing! Our tour guide picked us up in the middle of Strasbourg in a very spacious and new van. We had a wonderful time at both wineries. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Just enough time in each place. We learned a lot and had delicious wine and great photo opportunities! He dropped us off at our hotel so it was very convenient. Felt very safe. Perfect half day tour!

The guide was very knowledgeable about the wines and history. The wineries were really great and wine was very good. He helped us getting back to our ship on time before departure so that really relieved my worries.
Would not recommend
Elizabeth_O, May 2023
The tour was very average, we had expected something more organised & professional, this wasn’t. Our driver didn’t give much commentary & the 2 wineries we went to were very “rustic”! We wouldn’t recommend.

Informative and fun afternoon !
Dorothy_C, Sep 2022
This tour was very informative. Florence is very knowledgeable about wine, the plants, the grape varieties, and had a great sense of humor. She was great!We were met on time at the pickup location. We laughed a lot because there just happened to be 5 of us from the same small state in New England, USA,and the other couple was also from the East coast. The wines were very good, the owners welcoming and eager to teach us about their wines and winery. It was havest time and they were actually filling a barrel at the time of our visit to the cellar,which was pretty cool! We definitely recommend this trip if you only have a few hours,we went to 2 wineries and up to the grape fields where she showed us the different varieties of grapes.
Great tour
Jordan_T, Jul 2022
A great tour! We stopped at 2 villages and tried some white wines (and a red or two). The guide was friendly and told us a bit about the villages and the history. Overall it was a morning well-spent.
Definitely recommend
Dongeun_L, Jul 2022
The most generous wine tasting ever😚 Had a chance to try a real variety of Alsacian wines and our guide Laurent was very knowledgeable in wine and history of the region and was so much fun!
Afternoon well spent
Margaret_K, Jul 2022
I travelled solo but a family on holiday booked the same tour. There was good conversation, good wine, a knowledgable tour guide/driver, and pleasant wine growers. We enjoyed sitting in the air conditioned car between wineries while the tour guide shared info about the region and its history, specifically its wine history. Easy to book, pleasant experience, would recommend.
Great tour
Norbert_S, Jul 2022

Really enjoyed spending the afternoon trying wine & getting to know others on our group. I liked that this was a small group tour. Our guide, Jeremie, was very nice and recommended restaurants for us on our request!
