Discover five senses tasting to really understand your wine through sight, sound, smell, taste and even touch - you will really impress people with this skill! During this session, you will taste five wines (one white, one rosé and three red wines) as well as the olive oil from the estate. 
After the tasting session, a picnic lunch will be served on the terrace of the chateau, sheltered by centenary planetrees. Taste terroir products (seasonal fruits and vegetables, tapenade, goat cheese, ...) pairing with the wines of the domain.In the afternoon you will get the chance to try out your new tasting skills on your next wine tour. You will visit two wineries where you will be shown around and invited to indulge in tastings. Find out more about the wines of the Rhône Valley, the terroir, agriculture, geography and landscape.
During your winery visits, you will be able to taste and compare the wines from two different appellations: Appellation Tavel - where the pink wines are dry, crisp and refreshing, perfect on a warm summer day, and also Appellation Chateauneuf du Pape where some of the finest wines in the Rhone valley are produced.
