As you may have read in my last post, I recently spent a long weekend in the Alsace – the lovely French region on the German border with loads of influence from both cultures! I based in Colmar and toured around a bit, including taking a wine tour through Gueberschwihr, Eguisheim, Turckheim, and Riquewhir with Ophorus Wine Tours. This post is all about my tour, some parts of which are doable on your own, while others are probably easier with a local guide. As always, details on the tour and the individual vineyards are below!
Our tour was a full day wine tour and started with a pick up at 9:00 in the parking lot of Colmar’s only movie theatre. It was just us, one other American couple and our tour guide, Myriam (who was FABULOUS!). Before departure, Myriam gave us a quick overview of the day and some maps and then we were off to…the charming and tiny village of Gueberschwihr!
