Your 4-hour tour begins with afternoon pickup from your Avignon hotel. Relax as your minibus winds into the verdant Rhône Valley, a fertile and faceted wine region with many distinctive appellations. Visit two acclaimed wineries, starting in the Tavel region, where tastings of the estate’s signature rosés are complemented by a stroll through the lovely grounds. Sip on hand-selected wines while learning about the area’s terroir (environmental characteristics), and note the exquisite color and flavor that distinguishes Tavel’s prized wines. Next, drive east to the world-famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape region, where the prestigious Appellation d'Origine Controlée (AOC) regulations were developed. While at the wine estate, you’ll learn more about the AOC rules that set the standard for fine wine as you stroll through facilities and enjoy a tasting session including several beautiful samples. By the end of the tour, you’ll better understand the rich ecology of the Rhône Valley and the elite art of viticulture in southern France. Relax on the ride back to Avignon, returning to your hotel by early evening.
