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.

Great guide, expensive price
Niamh_A

We had a lovely tour with Pauline who was absolutely fantastic. The first winery was just OK, although I enjoyed the explanation of the winemaking process. I enjoyed the second winery more as it felt more relaxed and we got to taste a lot more wine. The reason for giving only 3 stars is purely for the price, we felt that it was quite expensive for what we got in comparison to previous tours. Couldn't have asked for a better guide though!

Had an amazing time on this tour! It was so beautiful to see the small towns along the wine route along with the included wineries. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and even gave us some great local insights into other activities to do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area!

Overpriced and nothing special

I was not impressed with this tour. It is far too much money for the quantity of wine and the experience. We stopped in a small town for approximately four minutes on the way to the first winery where we had extremely small sample pours and the "cellar experience" in the description meant standing in the back for 5 minutes. The second winery we sat in a very strange backroom that felt nothing like a winery. Both wineries are located right in town so I would not pay for this experience if I were you--I would take the bus and visit more wineries and build your own adventure for far less money.

The guide was wonderful - professional friendly, excellent English and knowledgeable. The added benefit - we went to two small wineries creating a very informal atmosphere to ask questions. One was with the wine maker himself. A lot of fun!!

This was a great tour! We wish we had did the full day. Danelle was the best! She was friendly, energetic, and informative! She was one of the best parts of the tour. We loved going to the small producers in the villages and even managed to go to a gingerbread bakery. Everything was beautiful and delicious! Highly recommended!
