Experience the Best Wines of the Colmar Wine Region

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 wine stubs, and 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.

Traditional Wine Making & Superb Wines

This half day Alsace wine trip begins with a drive along the mythical alsatian wine route. During this small group tour you will cross / visit villages of the Alsace region recommended by your tour guide such as Eguisheim, Pfaffenheim, Rouffach or Turckheim that are considered to be some of the most beautiful of the alsace region. 

This is where we will stop so that you may experience tastings of a large range of wines produced in Alsace including Grands Cru. Wine Tastings in local wine cellars include Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Rieslings, Sylvaner and many more. During the half day wine 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.

FAQ

  • 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!
  • 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, 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.
  • 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 Half Day and 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.
  • 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.
  • Who conducts these Alsace shared wine tours from Colmar?

    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.
  • What type of vehicles are used during a day trip from Colmar ?

    Our company uses only Mercedes Vito Tourer 8 seater minivans that are recent, comfortable and fully equipped including individual A/C, shaded windows, large leg space and on board P/A system for commentaries by the guide.
