Best Provence Wine Tours 2024

Provence Cooking Tours Popes Palace detailExplore the world of French domaines on our Provence wine tours and taste wonderful Provence cuisine and wines. While the word ‘domaine’ – French for vineyard – has only been in use since the 1950s, many wine estates in the southeast of France have been around for generations. The mild climate and many sunny days encourage the perfect growing conditions for a number of grapes that produce both red and white wines, making them particularly revered by wine critic Robert M. Parker. Experience all of these wines, from A.O.C. to Cotes du Rhone appellations, during wine-tasting tours in Provence.

While this Provence wine tour is all about discovering some wonderful wines, which you’ll sample in the Rhone Valley and Châteauneuf du Pape, among others, it’s also about experiencing one of the most beautiful areas of France. You’ll visit some charming towns with stunning views and idyllic panoramas.

Your Provence wine tours and cultural visits will be topped off with wonderful foods which you can pair with the amazing wines you will discover!
