Description

Discover the making-of secrets of Provence wines from the Côtes de Provence region while admiring the sun-drenched landscapes so emblematic of the PACA region!

After meeting your guide, head out to discover the wines of the Côte de Provence and the Mediterranean landscapes between sea and mountains. The vineyards of the Provence extend over nearly 200 kilometres and the sunny, warm and dry weather helps to create delicate wines that are renown the world over: intense, complex and powerful reds, high-end and fruity rosés and delicate white wines. 

Enjoy an introductory lesson to oenology in an authentic domain of the region in order to understand the specific characteristics of the Provence vineyards and the basic techniques needed for wine-tasting. Accompanied by the owners, continue your visit with a tour of the vineyards and the wine cellars before tasting their best wines. 

After a short voyage, make your way to a second wine domain: an authentic family-owned château in the heart of the vineyard. Visit the domain and the wine cellars and enjoy some wine tasting in the caves or in the shade depending on the weather. You will also have the opportunity to picnic or lunch at the Château with a tasting course accompanied by wine from the domain (meal not included). 

In the afternoon, you will discover a unique vineyard where you will be able to observe a very different way of cultivating wine. Finally, you will be able to visit a beautiful domain and discover its Cistercian cave as well as its high-quality wines before returning home.

Arrival at the departure point is expected between 5:30pm and 6pm
