Overview

You’ll be picked up from your Avignon hotel for your morning or afternoon wine tour. Traveling by comfortable air-conditioned mini-coach, learn about the history and wine of Provence from your private guide as you make your way through southern France's beautiful countryside.
Soak up the vineyard-covered landscapes as you venture 20 minutes northwest to Tavel, a charming village that’s historically famous for its rosé wines. Tavel wines are reputed to have been a favorite of kings Philippe le Bel and Louis XIV, the Popes of Avignon, the 19th-century French novelist Honoré de Balzac and the 20th-century American writer Ernest Hemingway.
Head to a local winery to try these world-renowned rosé wines and learn about the town’s winemaking heritage from your guide and sommelier.
Then, continue driving through the beautiful countryside. Cross back over the Rhône to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, another famous wine village firmly entwined with papal history. One of the most renowned appellations of the southern part of the Rhône Valley, Châteauneuf-du-Pape makes more wine than the entire northern Rhône region!
Visit a local winery to sip Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s signature reds, like Grenache noir or Mourvèdre. Notice the distinct sweet and rustic flavors of these Rhône wines, which often exhibit aromas of dried herbs common in Provence.
After your wine tastings, your guide will take you to Avignon to view the medieval city walls and the remains of 12th-century bridge over the Rhône. Pont Saint-Bénézet, also known as Pont d'Avignon, was frequently damaged by flooding but never rebuilt after the 17th century. You'll also see the Petit Palais and the Romanesque Cathedral of Notre-Dame-des-Doms and after a wonderful panoramic view of the city, your guide will take you back to your hotel.
