Wine Tours

Original Alsace

Discover this exceptional setting for winemaking and sample some of the region’s most renowned wines…

Nestled on the west bank of the Rhine, Alsace offers a delightful German influence on this magnificent wine region. Brightly coloured houses, rolling hills, and delicious food and wine make this tour consistently interesting. Discover the unique difference in Alsace wine and try the sparkling wine that is rapidly growing in popularity. The gastronomy in the area is equally sumptuous and is definitely not to be missed – hearty meat dishes battle with stunning desserts and the flavours on off er are incredible. Join us on tour to enjoy a glimpse into the many treasures that Alsace has to offer.

We pay a visit to Basel in France, a city on the border triangle of France, Switzerland and Germany. Look out for the picture-book historic quarter of Petite France, with its half-timbered medieval houses and its quays that overlook branches of the river, which makes it an ideal spot for a glass of wine.

The German influence is still evident in Alsatian cuisine. Pork is typical, and dishes are filling and rustic. Look out for Baeckeoffe, a stew of three meats, potatoes and about 10 spices, which is usually marinated in Riesling. The area is also famous for tarts, both sweet and savoury, and for its sausages.
