Full day villages tour, including a wine tasting experience in a local family winery.
Today will be spent on the magnificent and panoramic wine road of Alsace.
We will reach the village of Eguisheim (classified one of the most beautiful villages of France), Kaysersberg (elected the most beloved French village in 2017), then Riquewihr (which did inspire Disney for his film "the beauty and the beast"). At each time, you will have plenty of time to really be able to appreciate those fairy tales spots at your own pace.
In between those "must seen places", you will let you drive through the most scenic spots isolated in the middle of the vineyard. You will enjoy the commentaries and local input, passing through the most tiny and forgotten localities.
During that day, we will also stop at a local family winery. You will then experience some of the different grape varieties from Alsace, and will meet the most authentic actors of our wine culture.
After a 10 minutes drive from Colmar we'll already enter the scenic wine road.
We will reach the tiny hamlet of Eguisheim after a drive through the vineyard itself.
Today expect an "hop on - hop off" day to experience the most emblematic places from the area, an immersion in a fairy tales environment, including 2 large breaks of a minimum of 1 hour each in the localities of Kaysersberg and Riquewihr.
Moreover, we will visit the confidential WWII memorial of Sigolsheim, localized at the top of the "bleeding hill", built in memory of the sacrifices of the American soldiers during the WWII fights of the winter 1944-1945.
You'll enjoy during that day a REAL wine tasting experience!
Let you be surprised: the idea today is to explore and take plenty of time in all the "must see" places housed on the wine road, but also discover all the magnificent & forgotten villages that you would not have expected before.
