Day 2: After a lovely breakfast, make your way to the quaint little town of Tain l’Hermitage, which is just on the other side of the river. Here, you will 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.
You will also visit a quality producer of St Péray or Cornas wines for a full tour and tastings of several of the estate’s award-winning wines.
 
Day 3: After breakfast, walk to the Cité du Chocolat Valrhona. You will learn the secrets of fine chocolate making, and you will be given plenty of samples to master the art of tasting.
In the afternoon, electric bikes will be provided to take you on a picturesque ride through the lovely Hermitage vineyards.
At the end of the tour, 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. In the evening, a delicious three course dinner will be served in a local restaurant.
 
Day 4: After a leisurely breakfast, check out of the hotel.
