Visit a wine producer and explore their cellars, where you’ll see the barrels used to age wines for up to 24 months. In addition, learn how to taste wines, using your eyes, your nose, and finally your palate.

    We had an excellent day on this tour! Nicholas picked us up from our hotel lobby and immediately made us feel at home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the region and we both learned a lot. One suggestion that we loved about another tour we did s to have bottled water and snacks in the transportation (we each had small charcuterie baskets on the other tour), which was great between wineries. We will definitely book another tour when we’re back in France.

Wonderful wine tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Thierry, was spectacular. He has so much knowledge of wine in general and Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes de Rhône, Tavel, etc. in particular. The included lunch was delicious and in a beautiful setting. We highly recommend this tour.

The tour guide was amazing. I was curious about to process and differences in wine (I didn't have much knowledge on wine) and he was very helpful and seemed to enjoy having a "newby" on the tour. I would definitely go again.

Nice tour with good choice of winery.

We had the opportunity to taste good and average wine. Tourist guide was excellent full of knowlidge and he showed us two nice winery. Lunch was in beautiful place but unfortunately food was less than average.
