    What to Expect
    Begin your half-day wine-tasting tour with morning pickup from your Avignon hotel. Grab a comfortable seat and watch the city give way to verdant hills and picturesque views of the Mont Ventoux – Provence’s massive 6,266-foot-tall (1,910 meters) peak. Spend the ride chatting with your expert guide about the rich and intriguing history of the Rhône Valley appellation region. 

    You'll disembark at a charming wine estate nestled in the foothills of Mont Ventoux. For the next several hours, enjoy the beautiful natural setting and the informational tour through the estate. Explore the cellars, fermenting rooms, and learn about region’s diverse wines produced mainly from grenache, syrah, cinsaut, carigan and mourvèdre grapes.

    Afterward, sit down for a fun and educational wine-tasting session. Discuss viticulture and how to use all your senses to taste wine, then put your skills to the test as you sample five fine Ventoux varieties. With each glass, take in the wine’s color, aroma, texture and flavor. Finish with a walk through the estate’s gorgeous vineyards.

    By the end, you’ll better understand the centuries-old, prized beverage and the art of wine production in southern France. Your excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel by afternoon.
