No trip to the Alsace wine region would be complete without a visit to the Hugel winery in the village of Riquewihr. Perhaps no other wine family in the Alsace is responsible for the pre-eminence of this wine region.
Obernai, a town of 11,000 residents, is our home base for our exploration of the Alsace Wine Route. We are renting a home we found on the Web on the VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) site. The house is on a one-way narrow street that is just two blocks from the center of town.
