Bordering Germany in northeastern France, Alsace has traded hands between the two countries more than once. As a result, the region is marked by a Germanic influence on its local Alsatian dialect, cuisine, and prolific beer production. The beauty of Alsace is not only in its natural characteristics—the Rhine River and Vosges mountains—but also the Feudal castles and charming villages of half-timbered homes that line the famous Route des Vins d’Alsace. In the Alsatian countryside, a wine tour is both a study in European history and an indulgent culinary journey.
