Address: 4 Rue du Logelbach, Wintzenheim
A landmark next to Colmar, in a small village that all the Alsacian wine lovers know. This family business includes a small pub where you can eat some specials, but if you want to eat at the restaurant, you'd better book in advance. The service is very attentive and traditional, just as the menu (the Chef is one of the best Choucroute specialists in the area). I always bring friends who are not from the region here, because I know we will be welcomed like home – we call it “Heimlisch”!

Address: 11 Rue Wickram, Colmar
Talented chef and wine lover Nicolas Groell opened the restaurant in 2010 with his wife Noémie right in the center of Colmar. The cuisine is of the season and a special mention for the sauces! The place has a warm ambiance and the chef likes to leave the kitchen to talk to the winemakers and wine lovers in the dining room.

Address: 5 Rue de la 1E Armée, Riquewihr
When you live in Alsace, Riquewihr is not really the place you go, because it’s always crowded with tourists. The only reason I like to visit this typical village is to go dining at La Table du Gourmet. Here, the Brendel family has built one of the top spots for gastronomes. When entering this tiny house, you can instantly observe the poetic sense of this house; also on the plates, as they grow most of the fruits and vegetables they use in their garden, located next to the grand cru vineyard Schoenenbourg! You really have to experience ‘L’accord Parfait’, the seasonal menu, perfectly matched...

Address: 18 Rue Bellevue, Wingen-sur-Moder
The peace is guaranteed as you get to the small village of Wingen-sur-Moder, west of Strasbourg. The elements are gathered to make this a special surrounding for visitors. The owners have revived one of the last crystal houses, Lalique, and what better than a hotel-restaurant haut de gamme to show off the unique gems? The cuisine is precise and inventive. The cellar downstairs merits a special mention, and sometimes there are tastings there.
