Overview
Trade Avignon’s bustle for time among the vines when you book this half-day, Rhône Valley wine tour. Hop aboard your air-conditioned minibus in central Avignon, and set off with just a small group for company. Venture first to the Tavel appellation, famed for its rosé wines, before continuing to the world-famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, known for its rich red blends. At both stops, you’ll enjoy tours, tastings, and discussions about how wine is made and classified.
