The Wine Route is a capricious serpentine which curves around the eastern slopes of the Vosges Mountains, peacefully winding round the mountains and passing through about a hundred wineproducing villages. It encompasses some fi fty areas boasting „A.O.C. Alsace Grand Crus“ (Vintage Wine). Next to the Wine Route of Alsace, the cycle route follows former rail trails, parts of the Roman road and peaceful side paths through the vineyards. Cycle across beautiful landscapes: ruins of mediaeval castles, fl owered villages, Romanesque abbey churches, vineyards, welcoming “winstubs”. Enjoy meeting the winegrowers, tasting their wines, and exploring the streets of charming villages!
