Alsace wine tours & wine tasting in France

Alsace is a northeastern French wine region that is famous for its wine. This region has over 100 wine villages, and thousands of acres of vineyards producing grapes to make wines with character.

Alsace has a long history of winemaking, dating back to the Romans who first planted vines here around 100 AD. The climate here is cold enough to make Pinot Noir thrive but warm enough that red grapes can be harvested well into October or November.

Alsace wines are known for their unique flavors and elegant style; many winemakers aim for finesse over power, resulting in delicate wines with complex layers of flavor that pair well with food from the region's many world-renowned restaurants.
