What You Can Expect
Our guide, Julian, was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was also adaptable as one place we were to visit was closed and he quickly substituted with an excellent replacement. As I had presumed, the vineyards were glorious despite the stiff mistral wind, and we tasted several wines and learned about them. The wine museum we visited was better than many such commercial ventures and had well written English captions to the exhibits.
Caroline (our tour guide) picked us up right on time. She provided excellent commentary on the beautiful countryside as we drove through on the way to our two winery stops. We had time for a couple brief stops along the way to look at scenery. She was very knowledgeable about the area and about the history of wine production in the region. She also spoke excellent English (and Italian. And Chinese.). She topped it off by finding the exact chocolate shop my wife visited 17 years ago. The Mercedes minibus was very comfortable and held the 8 of us nicely. If you like wine, this is the tour for you!
