Historic Wine Region
In the Alsace region, the practice of growing grapes and creating wine dates back to the Ancient Roman times. Its wines were among the most well-regarded and sought-after in Medieval Europe. The Vosges Mountains protect the west of this prestigious region on the French side of the Rhine.
The 150-kilometer Alsace wine route comprises both flat and hilly terrain. Late afternoon light exposure on the slopes of the Vosges Mountains provides ideal conditions for the vineyards of Alsace. Alsatian grape varieties acquire distinctive aromas thanks to the cool, crisp autumn air.
Our own private Sommelier will lead us on trips to several well-known winemakers of the region to have a firsthand look and taste of the harvest and wine making. We will also visit a number of family tasting rooms for a full immersion of Alsatian wines.
France’s Alsace Region is one of the hidden gems with a diverse culture layered by history. Due to its geographical location on the French / German border, both countries have influenced the regions architecture, culture and food.
Alsace changed nationalities many times in the course of history between France and Germany. Pre-WWI it was German, annexed to France after Germany lost WWI, reclaimed again by Hitler in WWII and back to France again post WWII resulting in the the francification of the predominantly German culture.
The region is renowned for its wine, great food, and well preserved towns highlighting the 16th century architecture that escaped much of the devastation of World War II
We will be guided in visits to the lovely and historic towns of:
The Hameau d’Eguisheim is a real Alsatian-style place to live, located in the heart of the fortified town. This former post office has kept its charm of yesteryear and promises you a pleasant and typical stay, amidst old stones and exposed beams.
We will be occupying this entire Guest House in Eguisheim which is equipped with all the necessary comforts including an ample buffet breakfast each day. Particular care has been taken to ensure the quality of the bedding.
