Tour Details

Aix-en-Provence Wine Tour

Immerse yourself in the beautiful wine regions of Provence and experience Cotes de Provence Sainte-Victoire and Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, located at the foothills of the famous Sainte-Victoire mountain. In the company of a wine expert, you will travel in a small group of no more than 8 people.

As you travel in comfort through this ever-so-scenic region, witness how the vineyards cling to the edge of the Mediterranean. Turn inland and make your way through classic Provencal landscapes, where lavender and olive groves populate the panoramic countryside. As many young vignerons are moving towards organic production, you may actually view horses plowing the vineyards, or a herd of grazing sheep replacing weed killers.

With your wine guide, learn about these terroirs and their typical topography. What makes a great wine has to do with soil, climate, local grape varieties, and how the wine-making process is conducted. You will visit family-owned wineries and cellars, and delight in wine tastings and two individual locations.

At each winery, receive a private and educational tour that will satisfy both the novice or connoisseurs of wine. Go behind the scenes to learn the wine making process and see the aging rooms. Taste some of the finest Roses from Provence, powerful and well-balanced reds, and aromatic and lively whites. Your guide will teach you the different steps to the tasting process to maximize your experience.

Discover the elegant city of Aix-en-Provence during your lunch break, when you will have approximately 2 hours of free time for lunch and to explore one of the most beautiful cities in the area. Sample the local life, go shopping, or enjoy the delicious French food at restaurants recommended from your local and knowledgeable guide.

This is a day you will always remember, in one of the most beautiful areas of the world. Book today, as space is very limited and will almost always sell out!
