The Alsatian Wine Route offers a true picture-perfect image: fresh vines climbing to the forests of the Vosges, ruins of castles dating back to the Middle Ages, villages with old ramparts, hospitable winstubs (traditional restaurants in Alsace) and lively cellars. But it also pictures ancient abodes, Romanesque churches or fountains generously left by the Renaissance. In the morning you will be driven to the Alsace wine route and arrive in one of the picturesque villages that line the wine route such as Eguisheim, Pfaffenheim, Rouffach or Turckheim. Here, you will be introduced to the wines of Alsace through two guided wine tasting sessions that will take place in the local wineries. Your tour will also include a walking tour in one of the villages visited so that you may learn about the history, traditions and culture of this unique region of France.
