Alsace Wine Route Map - FRANCE
This is one of the best ways to know Alsace, the country of storks - following the wine route from Strasbourg to Colmar, slowly driving by several little villages and immense vineyards where you can try the incredible good white wines. The dry Riesling is my favourite but because my wife prefers the highly aromatic Gewürztraminer we had to buy a box of each! The heat calmed a little and there was even some warm rain - a perfect day!
The Alsace Wine Route has become famous the world over for its exceptional natural beauty, its simple course and for the instant connection its visitors feel with the region and its growers. The Alsace Wine Route winds its way from north to south, for more than 170 kilometres (106 miles) along the eastern foothills of the Vosges. This delightful itinerary leads visitors across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills, and through quaint villages with narrow streets and charming flower-decked houses clustered around the local church steeple.
