Embark on an Enriched Alsace Wine Adventure from Strasbourg

Kickstart your immersive journey into the Alsace wine region from a prime location at the Strasbourg Tourism Office, nestled at 17 Place de la Cathédrale. Just steps away from the breathtaking Cathedral, this spot offers easy access from city center accommodations, setting the stage for a day of discovery and indulgence.

Promptness is crucial to fully enjoy our bespoke wine tour, meticulously tailored for an intimate experience of Alsace's renowned vineyards. We recommend arriving 10 minutes before our scheduled departure to ensure a smooth start to a day filled with exclusive wine tastings at some of Alsace's most prestigious wineries.

Should unforeseen circumstances cause a delay, please notify us immediately. While we can wait up to 10 minutes, we regret that any longer delay may result in forfeiting your experience without refund.

A Day Steeped in Wine Tradition and Expertise

Upon arrival, you'll meet your professional English-speaking guide, identifiable by the Ophorus sign and badge, who will introduce you to the day's curated wine exploration. Comfortably seated in our air-conditioned Mercedes minivan, you're on your way to experiencing the Alsace Wine Route. This famed route weaves through the Vosges foothills, offering stunning views of vineyards, historic villages, and the essence of Alsace's wine culture.

Deep Dive into Alsace's Wine Heritage

Alsace is unique among French wine regions for its strong Germanic influence, reflected in its wine-making techniques and the predominance of varietal wines. Renowned for its aromatic white wines, Alsace produces varietals that are prized for their floral aromas, crisp acidity, and rich flavors. 

The region is famous for wines such as Riesling, known for its balance of acidity and mineral notes; Gewurztraminer, celebrated for its aromatic complexity and spiciness; Pinot Gris, offering rich, full-bodied flavors; and Muscat, Sylvaner, and Pinot Blanc, each adding to the region's diverse wine portfolio.

The tour begins in the Mittelbergheim/Barr area, spotlighting Alsace's Grand Crus and the diversity of its wine offerings. Enjoy tastings that highlight the distinctive terroir and the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into each bottle.

Moving on to Dambach La Ville, savor celebrated Rieslings and Gewurztraminers, discovering the intricate balance of flavors that Alsace wines are known for. A traditional "caveau" provides the perfect setting for this deep dive into Alsace's wine culture.

After a midday break to enjoy local cuisine (at own expense), the afternoon is dedicated to the Ribeauvillé/Riquewihr area. Surrounded by Grand Crus, this sector is the heartland of family-led wineries where centuries of winemaking tradition enrich your tasting experience. Explore the harmonious wine and food pairings that Alsace is celebrated for, amidst breathtaking landscapes ideal for photography enthusiasts.

Concluding Your Wine-Filled Journey

As we return to Strasbourg, you'll bring back not just memories of the stunning landscapes and historic charm of Alsace but an enriched understanding of its world-class wines. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to dive deep into the wine culture of Alsace, guided by our experienced local expert. Book your spot on this comprehensive Alsace Wine Tour from Strasbourg and raise a glass to the rich wine heritage of this enchanting region.

  • Who conducts these Alsace shared wine tours from Strasbourg?

    We only employ accredited and licensed tour guides that are also the drivers for all tours that need visits to be conducted by certified guides. Good examples are: the visit of museums, guided walking tours in cities, visit of historical monuments and so on.

    In some regions, where wine tours prevail (Bordeaux, Alsace) the tours are conducted by professional local guides, that are experts in Wines. The very large majority of our guides hold at minimum the WSET level 2 in wines.
  • Can we choose which village we will visit on a shared Alsace Wine Tour?

    No, unfortunately a scheduled tour is already pre-programmed and the wineries have been (carefully) selected. If you would like to visit some specific wineries while you are staying in Strasbourg or Colmar then do not hesitate to book one of our Alsace Private Wine Tours.
  • Are the Winery Tours private in Alsace?

    During our scheduled/shared tours the visits at the wineries are not private and you may find yourself being grouped with others. Groups usually always remain in low numbers. If you are seeking a more exclusive Alsace Wine Tour then do not hesitate to book one of our private tours. We will organise a private visit just for you and your party.

    Please note that on our shared Alsace Day Trips from Strasbourg, Ophorus tours are always conducted in English during the tours or at the wineries. Unlike other providers we refuse to mix languages.
  • What type of wines are produced in the Alsace region of France?

    Alsace wines are essentially white wines. Here, the main characteristic is that Alsace wines are varietal wines. The grape varieties that are allowed are Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir (the only red grape variety), Sylvaner and Muscat. Most wines produced are dry white wines but other wines include Sparkling wines, late harvest wines or sweet wines. Then there are Grands Crus Alsace wines that make up for just 4% of the total production.
  • How many Alsace wines will I taste during this tour?

    In Alsace, there are 7 different varietal wines, sparkling wines and sweet white wines. The range is therefore quite large and depending on the wineries visited you will wine taste anything from 4 to 7 or more wines per winery. Alsace winery visits are a treat for all white wine lovers!
  • Where will we have time for lunch during the Alsace full day wine tour?

    During your shared Alsace wine tour from Strasbourg you will have the possibility to take lunch in a authentic village chosen by your guide. There will be several options, ask your guide for recommendations. Villages can include Riquewihr, Ribeauvillé, Kaysersberg and so on.
