What to expect
Make your own way to central Strasbourg to meet your guide, group, and minivan for this behind-the-scenes tasting tour of Alsace’s best vineyards. Start your trip on the Alsace Wine Route Ater, a 105-mile (170-kilometer) stretch of scenic roadway at the foothills of the Vosges mountain chain. Enjoy panoramic views of vine-covered slopes and red-roofed, fairytale homes tucked into the valley. Your first stop is in Mittelbergheim, where you taste Alsatian wines that might include Pinot blanc, Sylvaner and Riesling. Next, make a stop in Dambach-la-Ville, the largest wine-producing village in Alsace, known for producing riesling and gewürztraminer, for a tasting at a wine cellar. Finally, visit Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr for your last wine-tasting session, where you learn about local growers such as the Trimbach family and Hugel family. When the tastings are done, your minivan takes you back to Strasbourg.

Great experience even with some rain!
Filled with so much information and wine.
Host did a wonderful job of driving us around and telling us about the areas we were passing by or entering. It's a must for anyone coming here for a wine experience.

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience on this tour. The tour guide was very good, the wineries were charming, the wine was delicious and the tour was very educational. I highly recommend this tour if you want to spend a day getting to know this beautiful area, the culture and taste delicious white wine.

My husband and I took a full day tour through Alsace from Strasbourg with Laurent. We had such a wonderful experience. Christophe helped to customize our trip in advance- making a restaurant reservation for us for lunch at a place we were excited to try, and selecting wineries for us based on our preferences. We loved all the wineries and had a wonderful day. We learned so much from Laurent and were very impressed by the careful precautions taken by everyone to wear masks and make sure we were all being clean, safe and healthy. Highly recommend!

Stefane led our Viking Tour with professionalism & historical information that enriched our experience even more. He was so friendly and told us about his family & guided us from one unique food place to another. Each tasting was so good & not rushed. He explained food histories & the proper ways to enjoy each wonderful item. He was patient & seamlessly kept us on schedule. What a great guide & experience we had!

We enjoyed visiting Strasbourg and Colmar, but can confidently say that we would have missed out on the “real Alsace” if we hadn’t joined the full day Alsace Wine Route tour. It was absolutely fantastic, and highly recommended to everyone!

Our guide Florence was super knowledgeable and lovely. The countryside and villages were breathtaking. The wine was absolutely delicious — one vineyard even offered unlimited samples. This is hands down one of the best day tours that I’ve ever been on.

We got to see more places with more context than we would have managed to discover on our own. As a bonus: our visits weren’t limited by public transport accessibility, and our wine sampling wasn’t limited by having to drive!

Wonderful experience. A must to do if you like wine and are in Strasbourg. Our guide was amazing and knew a lot about wine and the area. It was a lovely day to explore beautiful scenery, taste wine and even go for a walk in a local town. Appreciated how the guide brought us to 3 different types of wineries.

A wonderful opportunity to see some of the charming villages around Strasbourg and to gain an understanding of Alsace wine. It was great to visit three different wine producers to meet the people and to be presented with, and to taste, so many different types and styles of the wines from Alsace. Our hosts provided great insight into all aspects of vine cultivation and wine making with a pride and passion that was most impressive. A special thanks to our guide Jerome, whose knowledge and experience made this a most memorable experience.

It was an adventure done right. The tour through the beautiful villages was brilliant. I especially enjoyed the wine. Our tour guide Pauline was knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a wine tour and a history lesson of Alsace in one. I rate this adventure 5 stars.

We have done these kinds of tours all over the world, and this one was up there with the best.

Danielle was a lovely guide -- very knowledgeable about the wines and the region. She clearly loved Alsace and had put together a thoughtful collection of wineries to visit to expose us to the diversity of the region's wines and wineries.

Across the three wineries, which were chosen to give us an overview of different sizes and types of winemaking, we tried a thorough sampling of the best Alsace has to offer. I feel as if I know a lot more about the taste and character of the wines of the area now.

We also really appreciated the beautiful scenery, and the stop in Riquewihr to get a sense of the countryside and villages outside of Strasbourg.

Thank you, Danielle, for a wonderful day!

We did 2 full days with Ophorus, one out of Strasbourg and one from Itterswiller. On each occasion we visited 3 domaines and tasted some of the most spectacular wines that Alsace have to offer. Both our our guides (Pauline and Aud - thank you so much) were fantastic with tremendous knowledge of the history of the region together with almost encyclopaedic insight into the local wines, winemakers and the production process. They also clearly had great relationships with all the winemakers we visited and quickly picked up on our preferences so they were able to guide us to the wines we would most appreciate. Pauline and Aud did everything they could to make our days as memorable as possible and we wouldn’t hesitate to employ their services next time we visit Alsace. Great people make great companies and these 2 are exceptional.
