Perfect afternoon with a wonderful guide!

We were so lucky to be taken on a half day wine tour with Emmanuel. Not only was he friendly and welcoming, he was also incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. This was my first wine tour and I learnt so much about wine, as well as the area of Provence and Occitane. My sister and I joined a couple from the USA and all had such a wonderful time. Thank you Emmanuel for making our visit such a memorable one!

great tour! great wine! great fund! highly recommended!

tour guide was friendly, funny, and really tried to get everyone on the tour to talk to each other. not one of those "here we are and this is what to see" type of tours. the wine, the view and the conversation were certainly worth the price of admission. highly recommend the tour!

can't go wrong with wine tasting ;)

Nice afternoon wine tasting in Tavel & Châteauneuf du Pape‏. I learned a lot about the different soils/growing conditions of the grapes in the region of Provence from our driver/guide and the winery tour at Ogier. We tasting 4 Rose wines in Tavel and 3 (white/red) at Châteauneuf (Ogier). Good group of 8 in total, nice size, not too big.
