Only have an afternoon free? Then this tour is perfect for you! Enjoy a short, yet comprehensive tour of Tavel and Châteauneuf du Pape. Practise your wine tasting techniques and compare wines from two different wineries all within one afternoon!
From the Tavel appellation comes rosé wines which are dry, crisp and refreshing - perfect for enjoying on summer days. Tavel wine is a celebrity in its own right - famous for having been the favourite wine of French kings, Philippe le Bel and Louis XIV, the Popes of Avignon, and renowned author, Ernest Hemingway.
Soak up the stunning views and marvel at the impressive landscapes in Tavel. You will enjoy a wine tour in a winery here where you will learn what goes into making this prestigious wine. You will also indulge in a wine tasting where you can sample the Tavel wine and find out just why it is held in such high regard.
You will then visit Châteauneuf du Pape for a comparative tasting. Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the most renowned appellations and boasts some of the finest wines in the Rhône Valley. Here you will have another winery tour and be treated to another tasting, so use your five senses to taste and compare the wines from the two appellations.
This trip will provide you with a great education about the wines of the Rhône Valley, the terroir, agriculture, geography and landscapes and allow you the chance to visit and taste in two wineries. Wine-adventurers will love this half-day tour.
