As part of the celebrations of 70 years of France’s first ever wine route, Route des Vins de l’Alsace, French tourism promotion agency, Atout France has lined up several promotional activities and is also promoting other trails across France.

Atout France says that the Route des Vins de l’Alsace, which was officially designated as a tourism route in 1953, meanders carefully through vineyards and hillsides over 170 km from north to south. Almost 1,000 wine producers open the doors of their cellars to convey their admiration of wine as it passes through roughly 70 wine-producing communities, says the agency.

One of the regions identified by Atout France for the year 2023 is Hauts-de-France that has been crowned the European region for gastronomy for this year. According to Atout France, the first French region to receive the designation of European Region of Gastronomy has been awarded by the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism (IGCAT) and this label presents an excellent opportunity to develop food tourism in the region. Atout France says that this recognition will also augment awareness of the region’s chefs and their work with northern French products, whose variety is not often well-known to a larger audience.

The Vallée de la Gastronomie is back. Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley and Provence-Camargue – this fresh concept encourages tourists to experience four elite regions in the eastern half of France through a wealth of sensory journeys: Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley, and Provence-Camargue. From Dijon to Marseille, the over 600 km long route, which starts in Burgundy-Franche-Comté, promises to be a delicious culinary excursion for food and wine enthusiasts. The journey ends in the Gard department of Occitanie after passing through the culinary and wine capitals of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes and Provence’s Rhone Delta, adds the Atout France report.
