This experience, along the Grand Crus of Alsace, is perfect for wine lovers and curious travelers willing to explore small enchanting French villages. The Grand Crus of Alsace was created in 1975 and recognizes the most exceptional terroirs. Only four grape varieties can produce Alsace Grands Crus wines: Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Muscat (Alsace variety). The first destination is the Ribeauvillé wine-producing region. Here, taste fabulous Rieslings from the Kirchberg, Geisberg, and Osterberg Grands Crus.
Then, move on to discover the beautiful little town of Ammerschwihr, the land of Grand Cru du Kaefferkopf.
Ammerschwihr, situated between the vineyards and the forest, has won several national awards in the "Villes et Villages fleuris".
You can roam through the old town, full of curiosities with its beautiful half-timbered houses and its stork park.
Finally, reach the southern part of the Alsace wine route and discover emblematic Grands Crus such as Steinart, Goldert or Hatschbourg. You will find local Muscat in this part of the wine region. Alsace Muscat is distinguished from the sweet Muscats of the South of France by its dry character. Extremely aromatic, it expresses lovely flavors of fresh fruit. You will also taste some exceptional Gewurztraminer originating in the Hatschbourg Grand Crul harvested very ripe and late, with extraordinary richness and aromatic complexity.
