Although I only travelled part of the route de vin what I saw was definitely worth seeing. Very majestic rolling countryside covered with vines, agriculture. It feels like going back to a more distant medieval age.

Beautiful scenic roads along the wineyards, crossing picturesque and ancient villages, each of them deserving a stop.
And while you stop, of course you will be able to shop for souvenirs etc but also and above all, wine tasting is available everywhere, and f.o.c.
The people are generous and perfectly fine if you don't buy their wines and spirits, unlike some other French regions, Bordeaux and Burgundy where the winemakers are too fat and making too much money...

Ideally you can do the trip over a few days and this will allow you to take time to visit jewels such as Riquewhir, Ribeauville and so many others.

This was the best part of our visit. The vineyards were golden, the hillsides a sea of gold, really quite a vision. And way more beautiful than I had even imagined. Combine this with lovely towns like Colmar and this region is spectacular, especially in the fall.

Driving from Colmar to Strasbourg was a fascinating experience. There are so many small villages with the fairy tales houses to witness along the way.

Colmar and Strasbourg are both exceptional towns, but also Kayserberg must be mentioned as a must visit location. Driving from Kayserberg back to Colmar in the sunset offered som really terrific views.

We drove this route from Colmar (worth a visit to the old town) to Strasbourg, and it lived up to its reputation - lovely countryside, sweet villages, roadsides dotted with crucifixes, and plenty of wine to taste.

We came knowing nothing about Alsatian wines - here are the very basics: Riesling rules here, this Riesling is dry, and it’s delicious and inexpensive.

Tastings are generally free, but we learned it’s good manners to limit your tastes to three or fewer if you don’t buy something.

This would be a great area to pick a town to stay in and bike from town to town, though we didn’t do so.

A highly recommended thing to do in the Alsace, "drive the Route Des Vins." We visited the region during summertime. At this time of year, you'll see the beautiful valley in green, of course, it required a car. During the drive, you'll pass through villages; also, you'll see castles on the hill. Often you'll find cellars to visit, but be careful if visiting wine cellars, they'll let you wine tasting. Wine tasting and driving is not a wise combination to do.

The drive through the wine area was on my way anyway and I really enjoyed the scenery and the small towns along the way. And the storks.

It is a dream come true where you meet beautiful historical houses, welcoming people, viticulture, gastronomy, nature, wonderful landscapes and much more.
I was staying in Husseren-les-Chateaux, the culmination of the wine route, and for a week I was almost on the whole route, I had futher stops in Colmar, Eguisheim and Itterswiller.
I would have wanted to stay longer.

First trip to this part of France and have been really impressed with the region, the history, the people and of course their wine. We spent several days between Straubourg and Colmar France with numerous small wine villages along the way. Beautiful land and people. Next time I’ll bring my bike to ride from winery to winery.

We used the wine route in Alsace to visit many beautiful towns along the route. All the villages have their characteristics and beauty. We visited Obernai, Riquewhir, Ribeauville, Egusheim, Colmar, Chatenois and Bergheim.
