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 firstly taste a Hérmitage white wine and two Hérmitage reds, one of which will be the latest vintage of “La Chapelle.”
A three course lunch with a further two Jaboulet wines will then be served. You will have 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 you will be taken by taxi to a quality producer of St Péray or Cornas wines for a full tour and extensive tasting session.  
 
Day 4: After check out, travel by rail to Avignon where accommodation for your last two nights will be provided at the 4-star Cloître Saint Louis in the heart of the city.
Spend the day visiting the Papal Palace and the much loved Pont d’Avignon.
A three course dinner with drinks will be served in a restaurant in the city centre in the evening.
 
Day 5: Enjoy a full day transported tour with an English-speaking specialist wine guide. During the course of the day tours and tastings will take place in the revered villages of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras and lunch in a local bistrot will also be included.
