A few of you know that our trip to Japan and Nepal was brought short, and we have decided we need a quiet week away when the dust has settled. We are currently looking at Alsace. We do know the region well, and have been half a dozen times. We are looking to stay up near Andlau/Mittelbergheim, where we last stayed in 1989. We want a rest, and will plan a trip up to Schweigen , but I'm after a few names in the northern part of the region. Not the obvious ones, but new names, rising stars, either in the villages here, or in the golden triangle further north, which is even less well known. Would be interested in any cavistes in Barr or close by, and any restaurants. My wife is vegan. We get by in most places, but I'm not sure about Alsace. Personally I love traditional Alsacien food. Thanks in advance.
