Visit interesting wineries and enjoy lovely food/wine pairings in a long weekend or midweek


A small holiday in the Alsace is a great idea. If you want to get to know everything about Alsace wines and are into experiencing some great meals during your stay, let us take you there!
Included in the package are two tour days with 4 visits/tastings and a 3-course lunch each day.
One day we will concentrate on the North (Bas Rhin) and the other day on the South (Haut Rhin)

On demand we can also assist you with the selection of your hotel and/or your restaurants for dinner.

If you are traveling with children or if you are interested in something else then wine tasting, let us know what you want, and we will arrange it for you!
As an alternative to the wine tastings, we offer sightseeing in the region or a visit to a cheese factory or the chateau of Haut Koenigsbourg.
We can also organize a wine tasting at your hotel, before or during your dinner. We will bring you a variety of Alsace wines and we will discuss the wines together.

Pieter is an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about wines and the wine region. He gave a comprehensive tour showing us the differences between the types of wines and types of soil's. He is extremely pleasant his choices of restaurants are equally excellent. I used Pieter in the past and specifically requested him for this trip.
