The Jenkins Family travelled to Katzenthal and reported in Huffingtonpost. "Well, it was pretty clear that to make my fantasy a reality I'd have to go abroad. So when we were invited to visit friends in France, I started planning a road trip that would take us through the famous Alsace region. Ideally, I want to stay in that little cottage at the vineyard and learn a little bit about what makes the region and its grapes so special. I found that place in Katzenthal through Vacations Abroad. The cottage was owned by the vignoble Klur, who was happy to share the winemaking process, from caring for the vines and picking the grapes, to pressing the grapes and letting their juices fall into wooden vats hidden in a cave beneath our accommodations. "Here," Monsieur Klur explained in a thick French accent, "winemaking is a family business. We welcome everyone." A small playground and pool kept the kids occupied while we took care of work in the mornings, and then we were off to explore the castle and the vineyards. We even watched glider planes and hot air balloons soar above the stately scenery. And people seemed happy to see the kids. I don't want to feel like I'm a bad mother. And my kids shouldn't feel uncomfortable because they had this experience. I liked the way that the vineyard was more than just a commodity in Europe, but also a way of life. Is it possible to have the same experience here in the U.S.? Maybe. I just haven't found it yet."
This new guide deals about best places to stop to discover wines, vines and winemakers all around France. Use it to drive around on small romantic roads discovering terroirs and grappe varietis.
Of course in Alsace stop by at Vignoble KLur in Katzenthal for a food and wine pairing, a vineyard walk, a tasting or a vacation time.

Unique for companies wishing to join team building activities to a trip in association with the local patrimoine : wine and flavours. Competition was tought but in a playful and group spirit. To wake up the participants’ senses, it all started with some exercises allying respiration, smelling, a discover of the six wines from the Vignoble Klur and six appetizers from les Oiseaux rares. The matter was to guess which were the wines, biofood and edible wild plants on the menu. Results of this friendly competition were unvealed in the round cellar amid the wood barrels and followed by the incredibly powerful Tenor voice of Vincent Karche who gently invited the participants to sing “toreador” by Bizet. What a choir !
