Even though it was offseason, we got away for a long weekend for our anniversary and were lucky to book one of two apartments at Horcher. Irene and Freddy took very good care of us, we walked a nice albeit cold tour of their vinyard; a thorough tour of the wine process and a sampling of all their varieties. We were treated as old friends, even after just meeting them. Horcher is a small independent winery, nearly 100,000 bottle per season are produced, but this is what sets it apart from the larger producers. The majority of the work is performed by family, even their nearly ninety year old mother contributes to the process. I hope the tradition continues as they pass along the business to their childen. Great location with a short drive to many terrifi villages along La Route Des Vins. We spent two days traveling through Ribeauville, Riquewihr, Kayserberg and many small villages in between. Mittlewihr is a quant, centrally located spot with some very nice restaurants. We will be back, hopefully before we run low on our wine. See you soon!
