Full description
Travel to the foot of Mont Ventoux for a half-day wine tasting tour from Avignon, including a visit to an outstanding wine estate where you will learn more about the wines and wine making process of the region.

Joined by a wine expert, your morning will be dedicated to the theory and techniques of wine-tasting in a professional tasting room. Start with a scenic drive to the foot of Mont Ventoux, traveling through the vineyards of the Ventoux appellation. Take a guided tour of an outstanding wine estate, including the cellar, fermenting room (vat room), and bottling room.

Then practice wine-tasting using all 5 of your senses during blind tastings, and learn how to improve your tasting skills and wine knowledge. In order to truly taste a wine, a wine expert will explain how you must recruit the nose to pick up the flavor scents, and the tongue to help discern the tastes.

After the tasting session, a picnic lunch will be served on the terrace of the chateau, sheltered by centenary plane trees. Taste terroir products such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, tapenade, goat cheese, and more, paired with the wines of the domain. This picnic lunch is included in the tour price.
