FRANCE is not only Paris, Versailles and the Disneyland – everybody dreams of it. It is the country of refined cuisine, romantic love and high fashion. It submits intellectuals, dandies, romantics and lovers all the time. Its gastronomy holds the unshakable authority in the world, and wine from Burgundy, Champagne, Bordeaux and Alsace – the real dream of any gourmet. We head to small Alsace – the big kingdom of white wine, whose capital is the city-fairy tale of COLMAR, which is "sinking" in these wines and being buried in flowers, is worth visiting everyone, everything.
Here there is one of the most prospering cities of France – "provincial" STRASBOURG, and "in combination" it is also the capital of the European Union. It is necessary to see this city. It is just a crime not to see. How much passion, feelings and inspiration it is enclosed in this creation of human hands?!
Departure is in the morning, and we direct to the solar Province ALSACE, the recognized center of wine making. The essence of Alsace can be expressed in several symbols: fairs, the storks, which live in this part of France the whole year, and the famous Alsatian wine.
Our guide won't allow you to be bored on the way,
The history of wine should be learned surely
It is glad to reduce a burden of difficulties,
To return for a while cheerfulness of the young years,
Having given us vivacity, dexterity and mobility,
Will present us the entrance ticket to the wonderful dream.
Dispelling fears and softening customs,
Wine of Alsace will uplift us to the heights.
In Colmar, we will fill the glasses with it,
It’s our turn to taste Alsatian wine
On arrival to COLMAR we can offer an excursion: we see, that guides don't lie. It is beautiful! Just look at the window dressing of the wine shops. And buildings! All eras and times, from late Gothic, through eclecticism and to postmodernism: Pfister's House, Voltaire's Residence, the Square of Six Mountains, the House of Hundred Heads. How can it be! There is also “Small Venice”! And what about the amount of colors in windows and on the streets of the city – the real leader - and not only in France, but also, we can say it for sure, in the whole Europe.
Intoxicated with the smell of flowers and the fumes of wine we go to our hotel.
After a nourishing breakfast we are walking around Colmar, and we are testing divine drinks. There are so many of them, that it is really hard to look at: dry, sparkling, dessert... Gewürztraminer, Silvaner, the Muscat, Riesling, Pino Blank, Pinot Noir and many, many others. They create classical and surprising combinations to any dishes from seafood and meat dishes, cheeses and desserts. (At will). It is necessary to buy some – there is no such wine at home.
Having much enjoyed, staying a little tipsy, we leave the city.
The sun-drenched road is like from the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. It goes through the medieval castles and wine-making villages decorated with timber framing houses in a frame of the vineyards disposing us to wine drinking...
Not in vain wine making is developing here under the fertile sky of Alsace since the 12th century. In 1953 the Wine Road of ALSACE was announced the tourist route.
We will begin an excursion around STRASBOURG with a trip by the ship down the river Ill (at will, but you shouldn't refuse). Tremendous views... Then the walk around the city with our magnificent guide:Rohan Palace, the House of Kammerzell, drugstore Deer and others. The excursion will come to the end at "the Pink Angel" – majestic Cathedral of Virgin Mary...
"The local cathedral church is the majestic Gothic building, and its tower will be read for the highest pyramid in Europe" (Ivan Turgenev)
Charmingly!. And during your free time you can taste the famous Alsatian dish shuknut with meat and even to look for hospital, where in the 16th century they treated only by wine. Doctors prescribed up to two liters a day and a half-glass overnight. For somebody - unfortunately, and for the majority – fortunately, they don't treat anymore in such a way...
After pleasantly spent free time we go home. Two magnificent days passed not in vain...
In the morning we are at home.
