Pick up at your Cruise ship in Marseille

Today, we will come and pick you up directly at your ship in Marseille Cruise Port. Meet your English speaking driver/guide who will go over the itinerary and program of this private tour with you. Then board your premium A/C vehicle and begin to make your way to the Côtes de Provence wine producing region of Cassis .

Reach the Cassis Wine Producing region

Established as a Protected Appellation (AOP) in 1936, Cassis was one of the first vineyards in the region to obtain this qualification for the wines produced. The village is one of the few local appellations of the south of France composed of a single, tiny commune.

While most nearby appellations were originally cultivated by Greek outposts, Cassis is of Ligurian origins. The village of Cassis is Blessed by 3,000 hours of annual sunshine. The cool maritime winds make it truly a spot set aside for gorgeous wines. 

Taste local Provence Wines

Cassis is the only region in Provence to produce a majority of white wine, regulated to contain at least 80% of the Marsanne grape variety. This varietal adds beautiful aromatics and finesse, an elegant profile for the refreshing, high-quality white wines of Cassis.

Clairette is also a common component, adding fresh acidity to balance the body of Marsanne. A touch of red wines and a strong showing of rosé wines are also cultivated in Cassis – blends of Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

This private tour will give you an opportunity to taste the local wines and visit a domain. On this winery tour, we have carefully selected a local domain where you will sample some wines of bandol and cassis. Arrive at the local winery, and after an introduction to the history of the property begin your commented wine tasting session. Taste the range of wines that are produced at the estate.

Then, your day trip will move on to Cassis Village. Enjoy some free time in the village to drink coffee, eat an ice cream or buy some local souvenirs. Your private guide will also point out the main attractions that can be found in the village.
