Every Saturday, the market settles in the streets of the city. With 400 stands, representing more than 2.6 kilometers of flax, it has become the second traditional market in South-East France. It is an unmissable event for all those who appreciate the delights of the local soil. Indeed, it welcomes many authentic producers of the region. Fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry, charcuterie and cheeses are all local products that you can taste throughout your walk.
On the other side of the Rhone, you will discover the northern Côtes du Rhône. While browsing the vineyards of Côte-Rôtie, you will understand how this terroir can produce a wine of such aromatic richness. The vines are perched on hillsides on steep slopes with an ideal South and South-East exposure. Thanks to its configuration, the vineyard offers fabulous views of the Rhone Valley from its stony terraces. Created by the Allobroges and developed by the Romans, this vineyard is still grown by hand according to ancestral traditions. The verticality of its slopes does not allow any automation. This particularity also contributes to this quality of exception.
Finally, your journey continues with a meeting with a winemaker. He will introduce you to his field and his expertise. Thanks to a tasting of 5 quality wines, you will be able to appreciate the unequaled aromatic amplitude of this great appellation.
