Alsace and Burgundy’s wine scene is second to none – discover it for yourself
Say hello to the Alsace and Burgundy wine tour – aka an opportunity to discover two of France’s most fascinating and famous wine regions in style. You could spend a year eating and drinking your way around the regions and barely scratch the surface of depth and brilliance but, since most of us don’t have that luxury, seven days is as good a place as any to start!
First up, you’ll discover the north of the Alsace wine route – here’s looking at exquisite villages such as Dambach and Marlenheim, with its medieval walls, where you’ll be introduced to the complex Alsace wine classification including the Grand Cru system.
Au fait with the north? It’s time to venture to the south of Alsace, where the highlight is a food and wine pairing lunch in Riquewihr – reported to be one of the most beautiful villages in the whole of France. After Alsace, you’ll make a beeline for Burgundy, home to some of the finest Chardonnays in the world. Bottom line? Whether you’re a connoisseur or a casual wine enthusiast, this one week trip will fulfil your every wine need.
