Really enjoyed this trip. I love wine, but had little knowledge of French wine. This tour helped to educate me, and I walked away with a greater understanding. Plus, the wine was delicious and the area was beautiful. I am very glad I signed up for this.
We were met promptly at 8:45 by Julien, a young man who grew up in Avignon. He was extremely pleasant, spoke very good English and had a wonderful sense of humour. There was six of us on this tour (four in our group) and it was wonderful chatting with the other two ladies. We arrived promptly at the Winery however had to wait for the other tour groups, which was fine as it gave us time to look around ourselves. The tour in the winery was excellent and very worthwhile . The tour guide in the winery was incredibly knowledgeable and showed a passion for wine making. We sampled three wines at Chateauneuf-de-Pape and then went to Brote where Julien our guide described the wines after we went through a small museum of historical wine-making equipment. This was my favourite part of the tour as it was just the six of us along with Julien. We sampled three more wines and were able to talk amongst ourselves about the tastes, etc. rather than in the large group at the first winery ...where of course there are always those people who need to let know how knowledgeable they are! Definitely would go on this tour again, especially if our guide was Julien.
