Restaurant recommendations along the Alsace Wine Road
We will be visiting the Alsace region this fall, and plan on driving the wine roads. Any recommendations for good rural lunch spots would be appreciated. We will probably base in the Riquewihr area for several days before moving to the Moselle area.
For a truly rural experience I would suggest visiting one of the many Alsatian ‘ferme auberges’. They are family owned places, often in the middle of nowhere, where one can stay overnight and taste fresh, simple, local food. You can find them all over Alsace, usually closer to the mountains, so cattle can graze freely (great farmer’s cheeses are often couple of days old). Some of those places are located in rather remote areas, couple of them are accessible only by foot, but almost all of them offer breathtaking views, honest food and great Alsatian wines.
