Day 2: After breakfast take a 15 minute train journey to Tain l’Hermitage.
Enjoy a private guided tour of a prominent local winery, seeing first-hand the fascinating winemaking process, followed by extensive tastings of their wines.
You will then be welcomed at the Paul Jaboulet Aîné boutique. One of the biggest names in the Northern Rhône and producer of the world-revered “La Chapelle,” this estate has been making highly sought-after wines for almost two centuries and you will have the opportunity to taste six different wines; reds and whites from both the Southern and the Northern Rhône.
A three course lunch with a further two Jaboulet wines will then be served. After lunch, you will have plenty of time to admire the breathtaking views across the Valley from the iconic “La Chapelle,” a stone chapel which was allegedly built by a 13th century knight who fell in love with the vineyards here.
In the afternoon, enjoy a tutored tasting session of five Northern Rhône wines (including Saint-Péray, Condrieu, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Hermitage wines) at the prestigious Chapoutier.
At the end of the day, take the train back to Valence.
 
Day 3: After a leisurely breakfast, check out of the hotel.
