Terroir, Touring, and Tasting

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 a France wine vacation.

While this trip is all about discovering some wonderful wines — which you’ll sample at a chateau in Piolenc, Châteauneuf du Pape, a castle in Mormoiron, and a number of other family-run vineyards — it’s also about experiencing one of the most beautiful areas of France. You’ll visit some charming towns with stunning views, such as Séguret, which overlooks a valley, as well Gigondas, located in the foothills of the Rhone Valley.

Trip Details

During your travels throughout the Provencal countryside, you’ll also stop in St. Remy de Provence for one hands-on cooking class (an alternate class will be arranged in August). Chef Yvan was born in the region, and has worked for such chefs as Guy Martin, Jacques Lameloise, and J-Paul Bonin. His love of Provence, and the ingredients of the region, shines through with each and every one of his dishes. Prior to the cooking class, guests will visit a local fruit and vegetable producer to pick out some ingredients for the class. During the hands-on course, you’ll learn to prepare simple, yet tasty Provencal recipes that will sure to impress your friends and family when you return home!
