Holiday Information

A journey of three regions, connected by wine growing, but uniquely different in terms of their history, architecture, food and indeed their wine.
Alsace has had a varied, often troubled, history. Its German heritage is clear in the village names, regional dishes and architecture. We begin in the vineyards before heading into the foothills of the Vosges, where lush green hillsides and pockets of woodland have an almost alpine appearance, but in miniature. We take in the two most challenging and iconic climbs of this gently hilly area; the Grand Ballon and Ballon d’Alsace with the option of visiting the Tour de France finish of Les Planche des Belles Filles. It is a formidable and feared finish line with sections as steep as 22% - for us it is completely optional unlike for the pro riders!
Leaving Alsace the scenery and the food becomes more typically French. The quiet rural roads between the vineyards of Burgundy speak of centuries of wine production and the yellow fields of mustard remind us how close we are to Dijon! To the wine connoisseur this is a dream journey as each small village we pass through bears the names of a hallowed vintage. The traditional ‘climats’, the way of sectioning of different wine growing plots has earned this region the title of being a UNESCO world heritage site.
Towards the end of our journey we see the terrain change again as the hills grow in stature and we enter the Beaujolais wine region. Hillier and cooler, this makes for both very different riding, as well as very different wine. Our riding finishes in in the Grand Cru village of Fleurie.
