France Passion Nothalten: Wassler Jean Marie & Fils

France Passion Nothalten: Domaine Wassler

France Passion Nothalten is hosted by Wassler Jean Marie & Fils, an independent wine maker in this lovely village. Members can stay here for one night free of charge in a campervan or motorhome. It is also possible to stay here even without being a member, for a small fee. Tasting is free.

Location:

France Passion Nothalten is located in the Bas-Rhin department of France, the North part of the Alsace Wine route. Wassler Jean Marie & Fils is one of many ‘caves’ in the village at which you can taste wine. Nearby are some terrific cycle routes through the vineyards and it’s a short trip to the more picturesque village of Itterswiller. See our gallery below for more pics!

Overview of France Passion Nothalten:

  • France Passion Nothalten is hosted by independent wine maker, Wassler Jean Marie & Fils.
  • Parking is behind the Cave. Turn left, left and left just after you pass the ‘Cave’ on your left.
  • Parking is located in a spacious garden on grass. There is a very gentle slope but the grass is flat.
  • There is water and electricity available for  a fee of 5 Euros.
  • The village clock-tower chimes all night so earplugs are recommended for light sleepers.
  • There is no shade.
  • Jean-Marie does not speak English but understands a bit.
  • Fabrice (Jean Marie’s son) speaks better English.
  • There is a toilet next to the ‘cave’ but not really accessible from the parking.
  • The tasting cellar (cave) is a large room with a bar and capable of hosting large groups.
  • All the usual varieties of Alsace wine are available. At the time of writing these started at 5.50 Euro. The top wines were 11 Euros.
  • Check your change when buying a bottle as there was some confusion due to us not needing electric or water.
