Day 10: Alsace

Today is Monday and the wineries were open.  There was a lot of wine being made. 


Since it’s harvest time you could actually smell the grapes in the air.


Trucks filled with grapes, like this one, were on every road.


It would appear lunch time wine is a perk of the job.


Every winery was willing to let us taste any wine we liked.  I would have tasted a lot but I was told there was no reasonable way to have my purchases shipped back to the states.  So, we limited ourselves to a few wineries, buying one bottle at each and enjoyed the scenery.


We finished our day in Strassbourg, home to a pretty amazing cathedral.  As the photos zoom in, notice that each character/scene is unique.  If I understand the booklet we got correctly, they’ve depicted essentially every important biblical character and story somewhere on this building.
