What To Expect

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.

Excellent Way to See Rue des Vins
Anjanette_S, Sep 2023
What a wonderful day! Our host was exceptional. The trip to each location was easy, and the host explained the area, the history and the points of interest. The wineries were all wonderful as well. We learned a lot about their terroir, their wines and the winemaking process. The tour offered the perfect amount of wine tasting. We saw many villages and beautiful sights. We had a perfect amount of time in the beautiful village of Riquewihr. What a treat! This was worth every penny. The small group made for a very relaxing and enjoyable time.
An easy fun day

We had a wonderful trip with Laurent who took us to 3 different vineyards; all family-owned. Laurent was very knowledgeable about the Alsace and shared his love of the area and the wines in a very engaging and informative commentary. Each vineyard was very welcoming and gave us an interesting overview of their wines and the history of the development. A most enjoyable day, highly recommended.

Our guide Laurent was very informative and gave us lots on history of the area while we drove around and he also answered lots of questions. We saw the country side and went to three wineries. Two were very good one was interesting. Had time to eat lunch in one of the towns. Laurent gave us a great recommendation for lunch and we had a short time to walk the town. When Laurent dropped us off at the end of the day he also gave us great restaurant ideas for after the tour was over in fact he lead us to our favorite meal that we had in Stroudsburg.

We felt like we were on a private tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable in both area history and wine. The 3 wineries we visited were a perfect selection to demonstrate the differences of the smaller local wine makers. Highly recommend this tour!

Excellent Wine Tasting Tour in Alsace Region
Jeffrey_R, May 2023
Very professional tour and excellent scenery and experience. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Perfect Day on the Alsace Wine Route!!
Jennifer_G, May 2023
We had a wonderful day with Damian as our guide. Excellent wines and interesting narratives. Each tasting was a unique experience that gave us a better understanding of the wines and the region and the people who make them. It turned out to be even more fun when the other guest on the tour, a solo Japanese man, was interested in practicing his French, so it ended up being a bit of French practice for us all as well. It was a gorgeous day and we were thrilled with our experience. Thanks again!
Don't book through viator
Scott_A, Apr 2023
I have no idea how the tour was because I made an error in booking but Viator would not allow me to adjust the booking. I reached out to them within the cancelation period in my time zone but not France's. 1 star is to ensure you book through another company or direct to the tour.
Nice day of tastings
Donald_H, Apr 2023
A delightful day of wine tasting on the Alsace Wine Road! Robin, our host for the tour, was charming and knowledgeable about all that we saw and tasted. Being in a small group of others who enjoyed wine really helped
