Alsace is the easternmost region of France. Located some 275 miles from Paris. The region is flanked on the west by the Vosges mountains and the Rhine river on the east.
Alsace once was a region of Germany and became a permanent part of France during the reign of Louis XIV. Although, the region was annexed by Germany twice in modern times (1870-1918 and 1940-1945).
Tourists find Alsace to be a magical place, with half-timbered houses, which feature gabled roofs, chimneys and beautiful floral arrangements. The mountain area of the upper Vosges is one of the world's best hiking locations.
Chefs in Alsace created one of Europe's great original dishes: choucroute. Choucroute is fluffy sauerkraut served with sausages, smoked ham, and potatoes. Choucroute is best served with dry wine or beer.
Seven wine varietals call Alsace home. Six white and one rosé: Gewurtztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, riesling, sylvaner and Tokay Pinot Gris.
The Alsace wine route winds its way for 75 miles along the eastern edge of the Vosges moutains.
