This wonderful tour takes place over the course of a very special day where you will visit a selection of three of the very best vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, including the famous Château Fortia whose history dates back to the 17th century. You'll enjoy a wonderful bistro-style lunch and have time to explore the meandering streets of the famous village itself. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the heart of a region full of history, culture and joie de vivre. At the summit stands the ruined château built by the popes in the 14th century as a summer residence to escape the city heat of Avignon. Your vineyard visits will include an introduction to the unique techniques that combine both tradition with modernism as well as tastings of their finest wines. This is an intensive wine experience to visit and taste some of the best wines produced in the lower Rhône valley. It's a relaxing day at a gentle pace. A visit to a local artisan chocolate maker is also included.
