  • Aix-en-Provence: 3.5-Hour Wine Tasting in Cezanne Country

    4. Aix-en-Provence: 3.5-Hour Wine Tasting in Cezanne Country

    Enjoy a half-day wine tour in the scenic landscape of Sainte-Victoire Mountain, inspiration for the famous post impressionist artist Paul Cézanne, who painted many pictures of the mountain between 1880 and 1883. The Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire vineyards are located east of Aix-en-Provence, and like all vineyards in Provence, are considered some of the most natural in France, due to the drying effects of the Mistral wind. The poor and shallow soils, formed by limestone and argillaceous sandstone, help to produce high-quality vineyards. Learn about the characteristics of the terroir, and explore the wine making process while visiting the cellars of 2 separate wine estates. Meet the winemakers, and taste AOC Côtes de Provence wines in 3 colors - tasty, full-bodied reds of excellent structure, subtle elegant rosés, and whites of distinction.

    This was a brilliant morning excursion. Greg, our guide, was fun and interesting and very knowledgeable about the area and wine. Both vineyards we visited were interesting for different reasons and we sampled many wines ...hic! I would highly recommend this trip - it is a nice small group and comfortable vehicle too.
