Enjoy a full day tour of the Alsace Wine Route. Visit the Mittelbergheim region, which produces fine Rieslings. Taste wines at 4 different wineries during the day, including 2 afternoon tasting stops in the medieval villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr.
What to Expect
Begin your full-day wine tour in the Mittelbergheim wine region, home to the Zotzenberg, Kastelberg, and Wiebelsberg Grand Crus. The soils here are particularly favorable for Riesling.
Experience your first tasting with a selection that includes Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, and Riesling. Continue on to the Dambach La Ville wine area. The village lies in the heart of the Alsace wine region and is home to the Grand Cru Frankstein.
Enjoy a second wine tasting session at a typical caveau, as smaller local wineries are called.
After some free time for lunch you’ll depart for the Ribeauvillé/Riquewihr wine area that is home to 5 Grand Crus appellations: Geisberg, Kirchberg, Osterberg, Schoenenbourg, and Sporen.
Riesling is without a doubt the king of grapes in this area, but Pinot Gris, Muscat, and Gewürztraminer also produce some excellent area wines. Top wine growers include the Trimbach family that have been making wine since 1626 and the Hugel family, who started a bit later, in 1639.
Admire the beauty of the medieval villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, and enjoy 2 afternoon tasting sessions at highly selected wineries, completing your Alsace wine tasting experience.
