So many Alsace wineries...

There are over 100 wine producing villages in Alsace...

And each village generally has more than one wine producer so there are a lot of wineries in Alsace!

Over 5000 to be exact...

But which one should you go to? And what wines should you taste? And do they speak English? How much does it cost?

If you're a little nervous about walking into a wine tasting room in Alsace for the first time, you'll find my Alsace Wine Tasting Etiquette Guide here...


Drinking and Driving in Alsace

But be careful...you can find yourself quite tipsy or more quite easily at just one wine tasting. All the better to hire someone to take you on an Alsace Wine tour (ahem, ahem points at self and smiles) so you can enjoy yourself fully! : D


If you're very familiar with Alsace wine, you probably have a short list of favorite producers to visit already...

But there are many small producers in Alsace whose wines don't make it very far outside of Alsace...

Mainly because they produce very small quantities and they sell out fast!

There are two different styles of wineries in Alsace...

One is the traditional tasting house where the owner or a member of the owner's family is usually there...you look at the wine list...you choose which wines you want to taste...you taste some wine...you ask some questions...you buy some wine.

They're usually small producers with really great wine! They are less likely to speak English, but it depends...

The other style is more organized...you pay a tasting fee...you taste a set series of wines or choose from a variety of set tasting menus...you can buy some wine if you want...the tasting room is usually conveniently located on a main road with a parking area and it's usually large enough for a big group of people...like a tour bus...

Personally I prefer the smaller more traditional wineries. Maybe I'm biased, the their wine is soo much better...

Here are just a few of my personal wine tasting experiences in Alsace...enjoy!
