Enjoy the perfect combination of food, wine and sightseeing in Provence with this full-day tour.
In the morning, join a food tour in Avignon before spending the afternoon in Châteauneuf-du-Pape where you will learn everything about the famous wine.
The tour starts at 9am in Avignon with a walking food tour, guided by Julien, who will introduce you to the food and traditions of Provence. During the 3-hour tour you will discover the city's history and stop at traditional artisan shops for a variety of tastings.
You will also stop at the colourful 'Les Halles' market and enjoy a Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine tasting, which will nicely begin your afternoon. You will then have some free time to explore Avignon by yourself.
Next, meet your guide Romain, an expert sommelier, who will drive you to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where the Rhône Valley's finest wine is produced.
After a walk into the vineyards with explanations about the grape varieties, climate and soils specific to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, you will head to a family-run winery for a private visit. Romain will give you a full explanation about the vinification and ageing process before you enjoy a wine tasting (including a barrel wine tasting).
You will then enjoy a second tasting that will take place in a château, one of the most famous and oldest cellars in the area.
At the end of the tour Romain will drive you back to Avignon.
