On the wine route

On the wine route

A symbol of epicurean Alsace, the wine route winds its bucolic and serene way through ancient vineyards and beautiful vistas.

From Thann to Marlenheim, from north to south in the direction of Colmar, a chain of scenic, floral, wine villages illustrates the richness and diversity of Alsatian vineyards. The route, of great simplicity, is enhanced by the presence of various medieval remains and is a must for all lovers of Grands Crus.

Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, Andlau, and Obernai all have strong AOC identities who organise in turn, country-style tastings, wine festivals, and harvests in a lively and friendly atmosphere.

The tour of fortified locations and castles, adorned with a beautiful showcase of green vineyards and forests, promises to be a highlight of your trip. If you can go down only one route, take the Nationale 59 to the town of Sélestat and to the famous castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg, a stone sentinel inherited from the Middle Ages, which has survived the centuries.
