Discover the Delights of Provence Wines with Our Expert Guide

Join us on an unforgettable journey through the enchanting world of Provence wines, guided by our English-speaking driver and wine expert. Upon arrival at the meeting point, our friendly guide will warmly welcome you. Once introduced to your knowledgeable Provence Wine Expert guide, they will provide a comprehensive overview of the half-day program and itinerary. Step into our premium air-conditioned minivan, ensuring a comfortable and luxurious travel experience, as we embark on a remarkable adventure to the Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire wine producing region.

Experience the Majestic Sainte-Victoire Mountain

Immerse yourself in the symbolic landscapes of Provence, where the Mont Ventoux and Sainte-Baume Mountain ranges converge. The site, recognized as a 'Great Site of France' in 2004, boasts exceptional natural heritage. Located east of Aix-en-Provence, this picturesque area preserves its forests, agricultural fields, and pastoral activities that have contributed to shaping the unique Provence landscape, famously depicted by artist Paul Cézanne in his vibrant paintings of the Sainte-Victoire Mountain.

Embark on a Journey to the Côtes de Provence Wine Region

In a small group of no more than 8 individuals, our half-day tour from Aix-en-Provence will take you through breathtaking landscapes to the renowned Côtes de Provence wine region. Encompassing over 19,000 hectares (47,000 acres) and representing three-quarters of Provence's wine production, the A.O.C. Côtes de Provence region is celebrated for its exceptional location and abundant sunshine. The geological composition of the soil varies, with limestone hills dominating the northwestern part, while the southwestern region features predominantly crystalline soil. This diversity yields a wide array of wines, including reds, whites, and, most notably, rosés. The region cultivates traditional and local grape varieties such as Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Clairette, contributing to the unique character of Provence wines.

Indulge in the Renowned Rosés and More

The Côtes de Provence wine region is renowned for its exquisite rosés, constituting 80% of its total production. These wines showcase delightful aromas of white and yellow fruits, vanilla, and hazelnut. However, the region also produces remarkable red and white wines. Red wines range from fresh and age-worthy to generous and full-bodied, with notes of red fruits, flowers, and velvety flavors developed through oak barrel aging. White wines, traditionally crafted exclusively from white grape varieties, strike a harmonious balance between freshness and unctuousness, exhibiting pale gold hues with green reflections.

Explore Two Handpicked Wineries

Upon reaching the Côtes de Provence wine region, immerse yourself in the world of winemaking during visits to two carefully selected family-owned wineries. Begin with an introduction to the estate's history and the passionate families who nurture it. Gain insights into the winemaking process as you explore the technical facilities, witnessing firsthand the unique methods employed to create red, white, and rosé wines. Traverse the vat rooms and venture into the aging cellars, where the significance of oak barrel aging and the art of toasting barrels will be revealed.

Lastly, delight in the highlight of the tour as you savor a curated selection of wines. Experience the fruity elegance of rosés, the impeccable balance of white wines, and the captivating fullness of red wines. Conclude this extraordinary experience with a return journey to Aix-en-Provence, filled with memories of the exceptional wines and enchanting landscapes you encountered. Book your place now and embark on a captivating exploration of Provence's rich wine heritage.
