Where to start! First of all, early November should still be lovely. The vineyards and mountains look at their absolute best in the autumn - it’s a great time to visit. Our next visit is in three weeks, and I can’t wait.
Colmar would be a good base, and close to lots of places to taste and see. What’s your budget for wine, and do you speak French?
I would definitely visit Eguisheim, on the Saturday. It’s a very pretty village, and while busy, less insane than Riquewihr or Kaysersberg. Bruno Sorg is always our first port of call for first time visitors to Alsace. They have excellent wine at a good price, and very welcoming. Lots of other wineries there too, and good food - try Aux Vieux Porche or Auberge Des Trois Chateaux to eat. Paul Ginglinger and Paul Zinck are also worth a visit, and Léon Beyer at a higher price point have superb wines, especially riesling, in a very dry style. You need to go to the shop in the village centre, not the winery.
For pinot noir round there, you could also go up the hill to Husseren Les Chateaux and visit Kuentz-Bas.
Sunday is trickier in that most wineries are shut, although you can sometimes make reservations. Ribeauvillé is a good bet, and Louis Sipp open on Sundays and have a good range. They speak English, too, if that’s important to you. Lots of good food in Ribeauvillé as well, and a nice walk up to the castles if the weather is nice. Hugel in Riquewihr is just up the road, and also open on Sunday. Of the big names, they are by far our favourite place to taste. You are quite likely to get a family member, and Riquewihr is ridiculously pretty.
For somewhere a bit different, with a sweeter style but stunning wines at very good prices, you could try Ernest Burn in Gueberschwihr. The website says they open on Sunday from 3-6, but they are in a different direction.
Other current favourites near to Colmar are Mittnacht Frères at Hunawihr
Kientzler at Ribeauvillé. You can’t go wrong at either.
Most places now do a pinot noir. As I say, we like Kuentz Bas. Marcel Deiss’s is very different and in a different league. They are at the upper end of prices, and charge for a tasting unless you buy, but the Vins de Terroir are also unique. You won’t get a typical picture of Alsace wine there, though, and they are closed on Sundays.
That’s really just scratched the surface. We’ve visited upwards of 50 wineries, and there are so many good ones - you’ll have a great time!
