Hello,
I want to plan a romantic long weekend somewhere in France that is close/on a winery perhaps late March or early April. Im looking for something quiet and romantic such as a bed and breakfast.

I have spent alot of time looking online and only found one place that has a weekend package
-snip-

I am not Familiar with France at all, therefore Im not even sure which region is best assessable. I will most likely be flying into CDG airport.

I greatfully appreciate any suggestions.

You can choose Champagne region and its main city Reims or Epernay if you'd like to try Moet&Chandon or Veuve Cliquot.
You can go to Dijon, Burgundy for the wine.
You can see the incredible chateaux de la Loire and have a really romantic weekend testing wine in that region.
Or you can stay in French province renting small chateau somewhere in small villages on the route.
What do you prefer? France is perfect...

I would suggest the Alsace Wine Route which lies on the French/German border. We took a 3.5 hour train ride east from Paris to Strasborg and then rented a car. The car rental was located in the train station. The Wine Route is about 40 miles long and runs south of Strasborg. There is a fabulous 12th century, small castle (Koeningsbourg) which we visited early into the trip. We stayed at Riquewihir and really enjoyed the Medieval, walled town. We stayed within the walls where there are lots of restaurants and shops. This area has a very distinct Germany feel; menues and signs may be printed in German, not French. The terrain is rolling hills covered with vineyards. There are numerous fairytale villages along the route. We visited there in the summer months and it was not overly crowded...beautiful window boxes overflowing the flowers. A wonderful trip.
