About Rhone Valley and Provence Wine Tours

Provence wine tours can offer some of the most rewarding wine tour experiences in France. Following the wide Rhone River south from Lyon, vineyards are perched perilously on impossibly steep slopes, giving this part of the valley a distinctive and dramatic look.

  • The Northern Rhone is where Syrah and Viognier make prestigious wines such as Côte Rôtie, Hermitage, and Condrieu.
  • Your tastings will include the best négociants such as Chapoutier and Guigal, and the top boutique producers, Cuilleron, Clape or Gérin.
  • Enjoy luxury accommodations with Michelin-starred dining on the banks of the Rhone or in the charming city of Vienne with its amazing Roman ruins.

Heading south, you’ll discover the charming medieval villages and colorful red-tiled roofs of Provence.

  • Explore the famous appellations of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Tavel, Gigondas, and Côtes du Rhône Villages with tastings at some of their finest estates, including the renowned Chateau de Beaucastel and Chateau de la Nerthe.
  • Stay in Avignon’s historic walled city, close to the majestic Pope’s Palace, shopping, and restaurants, or in the countryside among the vineyards.
  • Between tastings, you’ll experience the rich history and flavors of Provence as you visit Roman ruins and open-air markets, and you’ll enjoy the delectable cuisine of Provence at some of the area’s best restaurants.
