We love to travel and taste wine in the Alsace region in France. Only a 6 hour drive to bring you in a totally different surroundings and on the way up to our favorite place ( Auberge Frankenbourg) you will pass 2 famous French cities. There is Metz with the new dependance of the Pompidou museum and the Musee des Beaux Arts on the Place Stanislas in Nancy. The Stanislas square is arguably one of the most impressive and beautiful squares in Europe. A Unesco heritage site and at the edge of the square you can find the Musee des Beaux Arts with its impressive Daum glass collection.
Both museum are well worth visiting and for those wanting to go to the auberge Frankenbourg, make a reservation well in advance to secure you a room or table. As for the wine, discover the wines from this region , most are of excellent quality with some outstanding ones . Most producers will welcome you and let you taste their excellent products. Last sentence is about a book from 1981 i recently added to my inventory which shows part of the Daum collection at the museum.
