Savor regional specialities from Breisach to Basel

Hosted by Jean Newman Glock

Sail on with Jean as she travels across the river from French Alsace to Breisach, Germany, a gateway to the Black Forest. Famous for its vineyards, Breisach is perhaps best known for spätburgunder, a German pinot noir. Follow along with Jean as she tastes this varietal and learns about organic wine production at the Missbach winery, family-owned since 1758. Next, Jean ventures to the charming town of Staufen to tour the Schladerer distillery, a family-run business that has been practicing their craft for nearly two centuries. Gain insight into the innovative process they use to produce their schnapps, a delicious clear brandy distilled with fruit. Afterward, Jean concludes her 8-day voyage in snowy Basel, Switzerland, where she visits her final Christmas market and indulges in some traditional Swiss fondue.
