Full description

Enjoy a half-day wine tour in the scenic landscape of Sainte-Victoire Mountain, inspiration for the famous post impressionist artist Paul Cézanne, who painted many pictures of the mountain between 1880 and 1883. The Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire vineyards are located east of Aix-en-Provence and, like all vineyards in Provence, are considered some of the most natural in France due to the drying effects of the Mistral wind.  Learn about the characteristics of the terroir, and explore the wine-making process while visiting the cellars of 2 separate wine estates.

Meet the winemakers, and taste AOC Côtes de Provence wines in 3 colors - tasty, full-bodied reds of excellent structure, subtle, elegant rosés, and whites of distinction.

The team that provided this tour was really incredible. We were running late due to getting on the wrong train, and they were helpful with getting us connected with the the tour group after. Our guide was very knowledgeable and although our group was behind schedule due to us and others being late he was not frazzled by it and we didn’t feel rushed. The tour was lovely and the vineyards were stunning. Thank you for the above and beyond service!

This was a really fun and well-contained tour. The guide (Pierre) was excellent. He was deeply knowledgeable (didn't sound like he had memorized a script, a great driver, and promoted a good "vibe" among the group. The vehicle was well air conditioned, easy to see out of, and had a good sound system so we could hear the guide's narration.

This was a brilliant morning excursion. Greg, our guide, was fun and interesting and very knowledgeable about the area and wine. Both vineyards we visited were interesting for different reasons and we sampled many wines ...hic! I would highly recommend this trip - it is a nice small group and comfortable vehicle too.
