A Full Day Exploring the Amazing Alsace Wine Route

Depart for a full-day Alsace wine tour. The Alsace Wine Route winds its way from north to south for more than 170 kilometers (106 miles) along the eastern foothills of the Vosges. This Wine Region of France has become famous the world over for its exceptional natural beauty. It leads visitors across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills and through quaint small towns and villages dating back to the middle ages.

On this small group full day wine tour departing Colmar, we will first pick you up in a centrally located meeting point. This full day Alsace wine trip begins with a drive along the mythical alsatian wine route. Here you will cross / visit some of the most beautiful Alsace villages recommended by your tour guide. This is where we will stop so that you may experience tastings of a large range of wines including Grands Cru. Wine Tastings in local wine cellars include Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Rieslings, Sylvaner and many more. During the day tour, all tastings are commented by someone of the family or by the cellar master. This insures you get the best explanations on the expertise and know how that has been transmitted through centuries of wine-making.

Be Amazed by the Beauty and Enjoy More Wine Tasting

Then explore famous landmarks such as Riquewihr where you will have time for lunch and personal discovery. Your small group tour of the alsace region will continue with more tastings of wines produced in alsace. The Winery visits & tastings enable to compare between the different “terroirs”, vintages, Grands Crus or cuvées that will give you a perfect introduction to these magical white 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 Colmar, Ophorus tours are always conducted in English during the tours or at the wineries. Unlike other providers we refuse to mix languages.

    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, Pinto 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 Colmar 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.
