Day 1 - 4 Feb 2022
Content: Take the train from Paris and check into this adorable boutique hotel right across from the train station! Some people choose to stay right in colmar but i chose to stay here because i needed to catch a train to milan. This is still super convenient and even more conveniently located to other stops along the wine route
Content: All of colmar is adorable! The city center is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Super easy, all flat, and gorgeous the whole way there and back. M
Content: Stop by PAUL for a delicious pain au chocolat 🍫🥐
Content: Walk around the cute village more! It seriously looks like real life beauty and the beast!
Content: Theres a covered market by la petite venise for fresh food, snacks, groceries, and more. This definitely seems like where the locals do their grocery shopping!
Content: Got myself another snack of course - a chocolate beignet 🍫🍫🍫 10/10 so delicious!
Content: Luckily the hotel i was staying in had a well known restaurant. Typical Alsatian food with a glass of delicious riesling. Very reasonably priced and quiet
Day 2 - 5 Feb 2022
Content: This was my first tasting in Eguisheim! Alsace is renowned for riesling, pinot gris, and gewurztraminer. This is a pretty commercialized vineyard but still good nonetheless. Very aesthetically pleasing
Content: You could spend hours just walking around which is exactly what i did!
Content: A very small, boutique intimate winery. I basically stumbled in here on accident and the winemakers literally live on the property. I basically did a tasting in thejr living room and got to learn about wine for an hour. It was an unforgettable experience
Content: Also another small family owned vineyard with a tasting room in Eguisheim. They specialize in natural and biodynamic wines. They are famous for growing riesling on 3 different types of soil. My favorite was the cremant (sparkling, but it has to be called cremant d’alsace) and the riesling.
