Organized by

Gilles

I was born over 40 years ago in the Châteauneuf Du Pape area and I had very early, in the 80s, my first oenotouristic experiences, as I used to help my parents in their cooperative cellar, in a time when nobody there was speaking English… After my dad's retirement in 2006 I naturally taken over the business, and added oenotourism activity with colleagues in order to provide visitors all informations of the area, such as history, relationship between ground types and wine character, wine making and wine tasting techniques, to help wine's beginners as well as the experts in their Cotes Du Rhone wines choices.
