The Grenache noir expresses its full flavor in glimmering red wines with pronounced tannins, a robust body, and a solid propensity for ageing. Afterwards, stop at the ruins of the castle built by the former Popes who relocated the papacy to Avignon in the 14th-Century and used it as their summer residence.

    We had a fantastic tour with a very friendly and knowledgable guide named Thierry. We visited two excellent estates but missed out on a third owing to it being a Monday and the fact that harvest was still taking place. My wife and I really loved the experience and can highly recommend anyone wanting to make use of the tour. Perhaps next time we come we’ll make it a full day tour. Really very good indeed!

Very nice and extremely informative tour with a very experienced guide who knows the answer to all questions about the region and the wine. The tastings were wholesome and give a nice insight into one of the top wine regions in the world.

The tour was very nice, very informative and relaxed. Our guide Nicolas was super nice, humorous and interested and above all a real wine expert. We learned a lot, had fun and were allowed to taste delicious wines. We would book again!

Interesting tour. Nicolas is very experienced and knows a lot about wines. Both the restaurant where we had lunch and the different wineries were great.

Great wine tour! Two very good vineyards with excellent red wines, and our tour guide was very friendly!
