Those visiting Alsace’s Wine Road (Route du Vin) make a point to try the local wines. And local vintners offer a warm, and liquid, welcome. Here in Eguisheim, my guide, Jean-Claude Werner (another good French/German name in this region where the two cultures have for centuries overlapped), takes me into the cellar of the Emile Beyer winery. Emerging from the fragrant cellar, I’m happily ambushed by enthusiastic travelers who, like me, were sampling wine at Emile Beyer because of our France guidebook.
