Route des Vins
From Marlenheim to Thann, the Route des Vins d'Alsace (Alsatian Wine Route) crosses a picture postcard landscape: ruins of mediaeval castles, flower-decked villages, Romanesque abbeys, undulating vines, friendly wine bars (winstubs), etc. The 170 kilometre route can be travelled in either direction and will enable you to discover the charms of the Alsatian vineyard.See on the map Visit the website
For a long time Alsace was home to the Tokay grape, now replaced by the Pinot Gris. The name Tokay, following a decision by the European Commission in 2007, is now reserved for Hungarian wines, and Alsatian growers had to stop using the term. In return, however, they secured a ruling that Hungarian wine producers could not use the name “Crémant”!
