The children go to school in the village, and like us, they have French friends. Since 1997 we make our red, white and rose wines and we offer tours and winetastings on our property, aswell as picknicks* in our vinyards. Interested in spending your holidays here? We rent out several apartments. *By reservation only

We visited Domaine de Marotte on the recommendation of the place we stayed in Rognonas. I've visited the area lots of times but this was my first time with this wine-tasting tour and I'm already making plans to go back again later in the summer. We arrived about 11am and were given our ipod and player for our tour. The tour is done in a way I really enjoyed, completely at our own pace. There were others there, but my husband and I were able to walk through the vines and into the cellar and kitchens listening to the audio tour. After that we went into the shop area for tasting where a larger group arrived and we did the tasting together while the owner talked us through it. And then we went off with our picnic basket (meat, cheese, bread, jam, tapenade, cherries etc) and wine to a table of our choice. It was a bit windy for the mountain view of Ventoux so we chose a private table in the sunshine among the vines. After that we had coffee and chose which wine to buy! The whole experience was excellent value and one of my favourite things I have ever done in the area.

We were taken to Domaine du Marotte by our private guide in April of this year. There were four of us, and our guide had arranged for us to meet the family and take a tour of their property. We tasted some very good wines. The family took their time with us and were engaging and friendly, even though we only made very modest purchases. We would recommend this stop to visitors who are in the area.

Couldn't have had a better experience, it's not possible to get better than enjoying a glass of some of France's best rose that's 100% organic, while cooling off in the shade enjoying the view of ven2 the first of the French alps. Simply serene. Come! You will not regret it, an experience to dote on! Real memory's
