All about the Villages Vineyards of Alsace- Short Break.

Wedged between the Vosges Mountains and the River Rhine, Alsace is a mosaic of rolling hills, mountains and plains dotted with chateaux, vineyards and candy-coloured towns and villages with storybook appeal. It’s a region of centuries-old traditions, rich gastronomy and world-class wine.
Alsace is home to rich and fabulous cuisine. Grab a table at a ‘winstub’ (a traditional Alsatian restaurant) and try local dishes such as ‘baeckeoffe’ (a casserole of lamb or beef with potatoes and onions, marinated overnight in Alsatian white wine infused with juniper berries), or ‘tarte flambee/flammekueche’,a thin pizza-like creation with creme fraiche, onions and lardons. ‘Sauerkraut'(pickled cabbage) is also iconic, widely celebrated in Alsatian villages and eaten with various types of sausage.
Alsace is a well-known white wine region boasting several Grands Crus vineyards, and every village, no matter their size, will have a ‘cave’ or ‘degustation’ to visit. The Alsace Wine Route and Alsatian Wines reveals the secrets and flavours of the sylvaner, pinot blanc, noir or gris, riesling and gewurztraminer, not forgetting the beer and brasseries.
Along the way you will pass through some of the most beautiful villages in France; Colmar, Kaysersberg and Riquewihr, with their brightly-coloured, half-timbered buildings decked with window boxes spilling with geraniums and traditional ornamental features.

This town is so enchanting it’s been declared an historic monument in its entirety. You’ll be fascinated by its cobbled alleys, galleried courtyards, fountains and colourful signboards.
