Summary

Depart from Colmar and discover the Alsace countryside. Travel to small villages such as Eguisheim, Pfaffenheim, Rouffach or Turckheim to get the local feel and learn about the history of the area, the people and traditions. If wine is more to your taste then visit & wine taste in 2 local wineries that have been carefully selected. Another option is to make the best out of your time and combine both some villages with a wine tasting session making this half day a perfect introduction to the area.

At first sight, the Alsatian Wine Route offers a true picture-postcard image; fresh vines climbing to the forests of the Vosges, ruins of castles dating back to the Middle Ages, villages with old ramparts that only protect the happiness of the flowered lanes, hospitable winstubs, lively cellars. But it also pictures ancient abodes, Romanesque churches or fountains generously left by the Renaissance.

Renowned for its aromatic white wines, the region is ideally suited with a dry and sunny climate, complex geology, favorable soils and excellent exposure. During this half day tour you will wine taste in 2 wineries so as to find out all there is to know about the 7 different types of Alsace wines. 

The Colmar wine region is on your program for this half day tour. Departing from the Alsatian wine capital, the tour will take you to quaint small villages such as Eguisheim, Pfaffenheim, Rouffach or Turckheim. In the villages, meet the winemakers who will explain the expertise needed behind wine-making. The visits end with the tasting of several wines that have been carefully chosen so that you may have a good idea of the range of wines produced in Alsace.
