That is lots of fabulous info. Whereabouts in BC are you? We will have one night (and about 24 hours all up) in Vancouver.

It is modern and comfortable, and very conveniently situated a short stroll from the walls of Riquewihr. It has its own car park, which is good for Riquewihr, and backs onto the Schoenenbourg vineyard. If you want character in a hotel go somewhere else, but this one is very practical.
I think others have already mentioned the key information about Riquewihr, but if you do decide to go there I could provide more detail if you wish.
Do you already know which producers you want to visit, or are you looking for advice on that too?

However, with just a week, you will need to be very selective and, if it were me, I'd confine it to the Mosel/Saar/Ruwer valleys and Alsace.
