Discover the Delights of Châteauneuf du Pape: Private Day Trip from Aix en Provence Wine Tour

Embark on a remarkable Châteauneuf du Pape wine tour, departing from Aix en Provence, and immerse yourself in a full-day private small group experience. Our English-speaking local guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Aix en Provence, and your knowledgeable driver guide will provide you with a detailed itinerary and program for the day.

Journey to the Enchanting Châteauneuf du Pape Wine Region

As we make our way to the captivating Châteauneuf du Pape wine region, get ready to indulge in several wine tasting sessions at carefully selected wineries. Châteauneuf du Pape holds a prestigious position as one of the first AOC wines of France, with vineyards that trace back to the Roman era. The region experienced significant development during the 14th century under the patronage of the Avignon Popes. It was Pope Clement V who first discovered the unique soil of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and his successor, Pope John XXII, further fostered viticulture practices, propelling the vineyard to fame beyond the borders of "The Comtat."

Unveil the Rich History and Breathtaking Views

Upon reaching this renowned wine-producing region, explore the village and its ancient castle, which served as the summer residence for the Popes during their stay. Delight in a breathtaking panoramic view of the valley as you immerse yourself in the ambiance of this historical setting.

Morning Wine Tasting Session at a Local Winery

Châteauneuf du Pape wines are celebrated for their full-bodied reds, predominantly crafted from grape varieties such as Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre—typical grapes found in the southern vineyards of France. The region also produces intensely perfumed white Châteauneuf du Pape wines, featuring grape varieties such as Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, and Bourboulenc, many of which are rustic French varietals.

Upon arrival in the village, indulge in a wine tasting session at a local winery. Afterwards, enjoy some free time to explore and embark on a wine tour of Châteauneuf du Pape wines in the old 14th century pope cellars. If desired, your guide can recommend additional wineries for further wine tasting experiences.

Lunch at a Local Restaurant (at own expense)

Following the morning's Châteauneuf du Pape wine tour, it's time to savor a delectable lunch. We can pre-book a table for you and your party at a local restaurant, allowing you to relish the flavors of the region while pairing the cuisine with more Châteauneuf du Pape red or white wines.

Afternoon Wine Tasting Session at a Local Winery

After a satisfying lunch, embark on your second Châteauneuf du Pape winery tour. Discover the history of the unique domain, explore the facilities, and engage in a guided tasting of the estate's exceptional wines. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the wine-making process, the diverse blending possibilities, and the wide range of grape varieties used to create these extraordinary wines.
