Departure time: 9:00am. Please meet your guide 10 minutes before time, in front of the Strasbourg Tourism Office.

9:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your knowledgeable guide at the tourist information office in the middle of Strasbourg, where you’ll climb into a comfortable minivan to start your tour. Head out along the Alsace Wine Route (Routes des Vins d’Alsace in French), which is a 105-mile (170-km) route winding through the rolling hills at the base of the Vosges Mountains. This area is home to hundreds of famous vineyards.

The first stop on your wine tour is the wine area called Mittelbergheim, where the grands crus of Kastelberg, Zotzenberg and Wiebelsberg are located. This area is known for its excellent Riesling wines, which are typically thought of as German. At the first winery of your tour, sample Riesling along with some sylvaner and pinot blanc.

Next, head for Dambach-la-Ville. This village produces more wine than any other in Alsace, including one of the finest Alsatian wines of all — frankstein grand cru. At the second winery stop of the tour, sample wines in a classic wine cellar (caveau in French) while learning how the region’s soil and climate combine to produce exceptional Riesling and gewürztraminer wines.

Take a break at midday for lunch (own expense), followed by a visit to the Ribeauvillé-Riquewihr wine area. There are five grands cru here — Kirchberg, Osterberg, Geisberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. Here again you’ll find the wine production is dominated by Riesling, although other wines of note include Muscat, gewürztraminer and pinot gris.

Spend some time in the charming villages of Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, where you’ll have your last two wine tasting sessions at two of the best-loved wineries in the Alsace. Hear about how some of the chateaux making wine in the area — such as the Hugel and Trimbach families — have been making wine in the area for hundreds of years.

At the conclusion of a day-long wine tour through the Alsace, climb back into the minivan for the relaxing ride back to Strasbourg.

Relaxing Wine Route

This was an excellent experience! Beautiful scenery, delicious wine, and professional service. Our guide Pauline was friendly and knowledgeable about wine and the are. She planned a great day with a variety of wineries. This tour was a great way to become familiar with Alsacean wine. We tasted over 10 different wines and got to learn about the different processes. There was no pressure to purchase wine, which we appreciated as we travelled only with carry-on. We also did not have a car. If you’re looking to see the vines, meet the winemakers, and learn about the process and history in the area this tour is a great choice.

Wonderful day trip to 3 charming villages with pick-up from Strasbourg. Each stop offered wine tastings and some history of the Alsace wine region. Our guide, Oade (sorry if I am misspelling your name!) was lovely and interactive. We were lucky and there was only one other couple in our tour, so it was an intimate experience. My only suggestion would be to offer hotel drop-off. After purchasing 3 cases of wine, we had to walk 1 mile from the drop-off point in 30C weather lugging the wine on our shoulders..... No ubers/cabs were available.

Robin our driver and guide was excellent but there were problems with the second winery we were due to visit which was not expecting us. Robin found an alternative but it was tokenisation. At the third winery we had a tour of the processing works which was excellent but the winery were hosting an event and our tastings were a very hit and miss unorganised affair. Robin was rerrific throughout. Orpheus the tour company were lacking.

Wonderful tour of the Alsace wine route. Our guide took us to three wineries where we tasted many different wines. Our small group was treated very well, and our tour guide Pauline was exceptional. She was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, wine, culture, and the wine route. I highly recommend this tour.

My daughter and I had a great time on this wine tour. Robin our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and invested in everyone's experience. The Alsace counryside is beautiful and the wineries we visited were charming in their rustic nature. My daughter and I learned a lot about the regional wine and we grew an appreciation for the local wine as well as the culture thanks to our guide and the winery owners/staff. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in immersing yourself in the area and are a white wine enthusiast.

We had a great time on the wine tour despite the weather being chilly and rainy! We had fantastic wines at 3 wineries and got to see a bit of the Alsace region in the process. Laurent was a great host who was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do a wine tour without having to do all the planning. Thank you for a fun experience!

My girlfriends and I took a trip to Strasbourg with the intention of seeing the vineyards. We can highly recommend this tour. Florence, our guide, was amazing! The whole day was extremely well planned. It was off-peak season, so there were no crowds. Each winemaker was especially passionate about his/her craft and that felt quite obvious. The region has not yet been commercialized, so the quaint and family-owned nature of their business is very evident. Hope to go back someday!

Brigitte was fabulous! She was very informative about both the areas we were visiting and the wines we were tasting. We were able to visit wineries of all sizes and unique stops that would have been hard to find on our own.
