Wine festivals

During the summertime, wine festivals are held in a number of villages located along the Alsatian Wine Route. They provide the perfect opportunity to get together as a family or among friends in a warm and lively atmosphere. Discover them today!

Discovering the wines of Alsace

Mainly organised in July and August, the wine festivals provide an ideal opportunity to meet winegrowers and to discover the legendary Alsatian Wine Route. During these festivals, the winegrowers open their wineries to the public and invite you to taste the finest Alsatian vintages. With their golden or cherry-coloured hue and their floral or fruity aromas, Alsatian wines offer a delicate and mouth-watering experience.
