Route des vins d'Alsace, Grand Est

4.8
No visit to the Alsace region is complete without a journey along the unforgettable Alsace wine route. Alsace or Alsatian wine is produced in the Alsace region of France and is primarily a white wine. Due in part to its Germanic influence, it is the only Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée region in France to produce mostly varietally labelled wines, typically from similar grape varieties to those used in German wine. This region also produces some of the world’s most beloved dry Rieslings and is also home to the highly aromatic Gewürztraminer wines. Both the geography and the fruits of mother nature will have you bewitched. With the beautiful Vosges Mountains to the west and the Rhine river to the east, the vineyards nestled between provide the perfect balance between temperature, drainage, and sun exposure. Westerly winds in contrast with the shelter from the Vosges Mountains are all responsible for producing some of the best wine in the world.

  • To see all these vineyards to loss of sight is incredible beauty... and these landscapes with these charming villages... what a pleasure for the eyes... especially not to miss one of the main reasons for our trip...

  • We drove the entire route from Marlenheim to Thann. We were on the road many hours every day and has watched most. We also visited the konsentrations camp Strutthof, and the grand ballon. We visited many wine houses and have many bottles to take home. The last part of the route is by far the best, with the largest cities. We lived first in Wissenbourg, then Marlenheim then Saint-Hippolyte and then 2 days in Colmar. Then 1 night in Guberwiller and last night in Thann.

  • This route is easy to follow, everywhere is the route nicely and she walks by many pretty villages. From village to village, you constantly between the beautiful vineyards. Fun to do, scenic views. You can also deviate from the route here and there to visit.
