Alsace – The Beautiful Crossroad of France and Germany

Alsace, France’s eastern most wine region, was part of Germany for many disputed years. It was a contested region through the 19th and 20th century and the wines are French but made from German varietals. Storybook villages seem more German than French in Alsace. The food, starting with the famous sauerkraut seems more German than French. And yet this is France in full. And the spectacular wines are 100% French in their strength and their expression.

About Our Tours

Strasbourg – Strasbourg is the formal capital of Alsace.  This beautiful city is informed by the Rhine River, the current border with Germany.  Our experienced guides will take you to the bakeries, delicatessens, restaurants and wine bars, “Weinstubben”, that make Alsace so special.  And of course, the great architectural sites starting with the majestic cathedral.

The Alsace wine routeThe “wine road” in Alsace winds through the villages that produce  the greatest wines of the region.  And it is a magic road. Our guides will take you from winery to winery and from restaurant to restaurant in each of the important villages.  

Colmar – Strasbourg is the formal capital of Alsace, the seat of the government.  The seat of power.  Colmar, however,  is the wine capital of Alsace.
