You will take part in the grape harvest in Alsace. The harvest is for all those who are not afraid boots and rain, who love the countryside and are patient in the effort! Indeed, even if the actions are simple, the grape is picked by hand and requires perseverance. All these efforts are largely rewarded by the friendly atmosphere of the teams of the harvest and the clness to nature that renews whoever rubs!
You will know the joy of the harvest by becoming a “Grape-picker for a day” during which you can spend half a day with a winemaker. This is an absolutely special time during which you can discover the world of wine, the charm of hand-picking in Alsace and even participate for a cellar visit and a wine tasting. The evening is free for your own trekking in Colmar.
Day 7. Optional: Visiting Colmar (France’s fairytale town) and other beautiful villages
Let’s discover otherwise Colmar, with a local guide to admire the Alsatian heritage.
Colmar was apparently the inspiration for the village in the Disney film Beauty and the Beast, and it’s not hard to see why. Walking through its streets is like seeing childhood fairy stories come to life. Everywhere you look there are colorfully painted waterside houses, wooden shutters, twisting cobbled streets and window boxes draped with blooms.
Lunch at a two-star Michelin restaurant in the heart of Colmar. The Chef invites you to share a unique gastronomic experience through a cuisine in his image, free and sincere. In the spotlight, Salmon cooked on a cucumber corolla with dill, Beef tartare with caviar and a slightly spicy oyster, Stretch of seabass in bread crust with shrimp cooked on the grill, Roasted deer fillet with bursts of roasted cocoa beans with pepper sauce. All your taste buds will marvel.
After lunch, you will leave Colmar for the Alsatian countryside and visit some of the most beautiful villages in the region. Start with a guided walking tour of Kayserberg, a village renowned for its peaceful alleys and half-timbered houses. You can marvel at the imperial castle ruins that dominate the town.
Then take the Alsace Wine Route where you can make a few stops to take great photos of the surrounding landscapes. Upon arrival in Riquiewihr, take part in a guided walking tour of this walled city, a true jewel surrounded by vineyards. The flowers and plants omnipresent participate in the charm of the village. Head to Hunawihr, one of the most beautiful villages in France, renowned for its many craft shops and various cultural sites.
