Southern Rhone Wine Tour 2023
The Rhône Valley is the second largest wine-growing region in France and possibly the most exciting. This tour will focus on the Southern Rhone, where the stunning landscape is dotted by steep hills, lavender fields and olive groves. The Mediterranean climate brings warmth and wild herbs which scatter the hillsides. The region is famous for the wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Lirac,Tavel, and other appellations, and of course Cotes-du-Rhone. The city of Avignon, where we will stay, is an architectural treasure trove, with the Palais des Papes and numerous other heritage sites, and it’s the perfect base for exploring the vineyards.
