Full description
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. 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.

Great way to get to know a few local winemakers in smaller villages! We had 10+ samples at each stop, and many provided a few snacks as well. I enjoyed our smaller tour group, but wished the van was larger with taller windows as it was hard to see sites if you were in the middle or on the wrong side. Otherwise still an awesome day!

It was so nice and fantastic tour for us.

My wife and I were really happy to join this tour. We luckily got the nice blue sky after arriving the top of hill which has the big cross and good scenery. All wine were very good. Riesling wine was so nice. And the other participants and the tour guide are very friendly and cute. Especially the owner of winery in the south side of the earth is very serious. He wrote down all the points of the explanation from the winery persons. It should be done by us. Finally I really appreciate for giving me the chance to join this tour. I find out the Alsace wine is match for me.
