Indulge your taste buds by trying all the best wines from all varieties of the Southern Cotes du Rhone area ! In this half day private tour, you will visit several cellars from Chateauneuf du Pape to Lirac and Tavel.
This private wine tour is suitable for 1 to 7 persons in full comfort, 8 persons maximum. It is not suitable for children under 18 and for pregnant women.
After the pickup at your hotel around 8:30 or 13:30, let's go to CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE :
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the world's most famous and the well known wine of the Côtes du Rhône area. Let us take you to two of the most prestigious wine cellars, taste several reds and whites of different years and discover the wine making process and the terroir type.
Then we wil cross the Rhone river to discover the mysterious LIRAC and the delightful TAVEL :
Little known out of the area of the Cotes du Rhone, the red is elegant, has complexity and bouquets, deep ruby robe, and the woods and licorice developping aromas during aging, make it an excellent "vin de garde". The white is smooth, fruity and fresh, and can "flavour" as well the aperitive as the dessert.
Proclaimed first "rosé de France", king of rosés by the Pope Innocent VI, this fresh and fruity pink is very popular through its quality. We can drink it anytime, as aperitive or with a great variety of meals.
Of course if you have special requirements or if you know where you want to go we can discuss, we can adapt...
Please note : Wine shipping is very expensive. Should you plan to buy and ship bottles, you can proceed a shipment of 3(100€),6(150€),12(220€) bottles from the same cellar only. Another solution is to get (from us, € 125) a special wine carrier, approved by all airlines companies, that allow you to carry up to 15 bottles in full safety... to be considered in your luggages's weight calculation (18kg) !
