    What to Expect
    Your day of adventuring through Rhône Valley wine country begins with morning pickup from your Avignon hotel. Grab a seat in the minivan and enjoy scenic views as you wind through the foothills of Mont Vernoux to your first winery. Along the way, learn about the region's renown as a premier producer of fine wine.

    After an hour, you'll arrive at a charming wine estate in the Ventoux region. Begin with an informational tour through the estate, including the cellars, fermenting rooms, and learn about region’s diverse wines. Then sit down for an educational wine-tasting session, where you’ll discover how to use all your senses to distinguish unique flavor notes. You’ll sample up to five wines – taking in each wine’s color, aroma, texture and flavor – as well as local olive oils. Afterward, spend time strolling the vineyards and appreciating the beautiful natural setting.

    Continue on to the quaint town of Beaumes-de-Venise for some lunch (own expense) and free time to shop and explore. After this short break, the wine-tasting continues in the Tavel region. Try signature Tavel rosés while learning about the area's distinct terroir (environmental characteristics). Finish your tour in the acclaimed Châteauneuf-du-Pape region, known for producing some of the world’s finest wine. Stroll through the facilities and enjoy tasting several beautiful samples before heading back to Avignon. 

    Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the evening.
