You are on your way to Riquewihr, a medieval town, located in the heart of the Alsatian wine region. This wonderful wine village is counted as 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' (or 'the most beautiful villages of France'). The combination of her beautiful architecture and world-famous wines gave Riquewihr the nickname 'The Pearl of Alsace'.
