La route des vins

Dominique is becoming a regular contributor on this blog and I absolutely don't mind that as I simply love receiving postcards from France! This time a postcard showing the wine route in the Alsace region. Seems like a very scenic route with interesting landscapes & towns. Dominique, n'arrête pas de m'envoyer ces cartes postales magnifiques! J'apprécie ça énormément! :)

Over the past 60 years, the Alsace Wine Route has contributed to the success of Alsace wines. It has become famous the world over for its exceptional natural beauty, its simple course and for the instant connection its visitors feel with the region and its growers. The Alsace Wine Route winds its way from north to south, for more than 170 kilometres (106 miles) along the eastern foothills of the Vosges. This delightful itinerary leads visitors across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills, and through quaint villages with narrow streets and charming flower-decked houses clustered around the local church steeple.

Visitors can easily explore the heart of the vineyards, along numerous vineyard paths leading to the crest of each slope, where signs explain the work of the winegrowers and the diversity of the grape varieties grown. They are welcomed into “winstubs” (local cafés) and tasting cellars which constantly celebrate their passion for wine.

Thank you very much Dominique! / Merci beaucoup Dominique!
