Here a video of my visit to a tasting of the wines of Albert Mann, with tasters from all around the world, professionals and sommeliers including celebrated cheese maker Bernard Antony. I really liked the Rieslings at Albert Mann most.
Great times tasting in Alsace, with top sommeliers and cheesemakers among others

Alsace region was one of the best memories of my Uniworld Wine River Cruise on the Castles Along the Rhine
The three major cities of Alsace are Strasbourg, Colmar and Mulhouse. Outside of these cities, the region is very rural, with lots of small villages, vineyards, and castles to visit
Saverne is on a mountain pass on the border with the region of Lorraine, and it is noted for the Chateau des Rohans, constructed in Neoclassic style at the end of the 18th century.
Selestat is a town of traditional Alsace buildings and interesting churches. It is on the Route des Vins (the Alsace Wine Route, see below) and a good base for exploring the Castle at Haut Koenigsbourg.
