Experience the Finest Wines of Provence: Private Wine Tour with Expert Local Guide

Embark on a remarkable wine tasting journey with our private wine tour in Provence, guided by our English-speaking local expert who possesses in-depth knowledge of Provence wines. Whether you're a small or large group, our specially crafted wine tours cater to your preferences. Step into our premium air-conditioned vehicle and begin your immersive exploration of the renowned Provence wine region.

Indulge in Your Preferred Wine Style

Our private tours from Aix en Provence offer access to various wine appellations within the Provence region. Accompanied by your knowledgeable wine guide, discover the unique characteristics of the terroir and gain insights into the meticulous wine-making process as you explore the aging cellars. Engage in private visits and tours, and delight in sampling a diverse selection of wines. Below, we present our curated selection of Provence Appellations that you can visit from Aix en Provence:

Coteaux d'Aix en Provence

Located furthest to the West among Provence wines, the vineyards of Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence stretch from the Durance River to the Mediterranean Sea and from the Rhône Valley (West) to Sainte-Victoire Mountain (East). This appellation is renowned for its captivating reds and rosés. The red wines offer a beautiful texture, ample with firm tannins that provide a structured and voluminous experience. Meanwhile, the rosé wines charm the palate with their roundness, aromatic depth, and a refreshing finish often accompanied by minerality.

Côtes de Provence Sainte Victoire

Situated at the base of Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the vineyards of Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire thrive on poor yet quality soil consisting of limestone and clayey sandstone. These vineyards produce exceptional red wines ranging from delicate to robust and generous, as well as elegant rosés with subtle flavors.

Bandol

Nestled in a natural amphitheater, the Bandol vineyard stretches across terraces encompassing approximately 1,600 hectares. Protected by the massif of Sainte Baume to the North, this vineyard descends gracefully toward the sea, creating a magnificent amphitheater of wooded hills. Bandol wines predominantly feature the Mourvèdre variety, known as the king of the appellation, complemented harmoniously by Grenache and Cinsault. The red wines exemplify balance, while the rosés captivate with their roundness and generosity.

Cassis

Established as a Protected Appellation (AOP) in 1936, Cassis stands as one of the early vineyards in the region to receive this prestigious qualification. This picturesque village, composed of a single commune, holds the distinction of producing predominantly white wines, with at least 80% Marsanne. The Marsanne varietal contributes exquisite aromatics, finesse, and an elegant profile to the refreshing high-quality white wines of Cassis.

Châteauneuf du Pape

The Châteauneuf du Pape Appellation, labeled as one of the first AOC wines of France in 1936, boasts a rich history dating back to the Roman era. This vineyard, expanded and developed during the 14th century by the Avignon Popes, showcases a remarkable soil composition. Explore the village and its ancient castle, the former summer residence of the Popes, offering a breathtaking panoramic view of the valley.

All our full-day wine tours feature guided wine tastings at carefully selected wineries. During the booking process, you'll have the opportunity to specify your preferred Provence appellation. If you're undecided, simply select the 'Help me decide' option during the booking process, and our team will curate the perfect Provence wine tour tailored to your preferences. Embark on a remarkable wine tasting experience and book your private wine tour now.
