An excursion from Scenic Cruises’ Scenic Ruby not only put us in the heart of picturesque Mittelbergheim and its lovely half-timber houses but allowed us to meet one particularly passionate winemaker in the Alsace Wine Region.
Our guide Frederique Specht, aka “Freddie,” noted our next stop would be the wine tasting. She cautioned us to watch our step as our small group exited the tour van onto a narrow cobblestone street.
Shortly after entering a set of gates, we were greeted by an animated spokesperson, pictured above, who quickly began talking about wine. When we stopped him to ask his name, he laughed pointing to the sign that read Domaine Albert Seltz.
